we are invincible—
through lovers fires fights all breeds of calamity
let our love stand constant.
We lie side-at-side,
permeated with the platonic ideal
even as the sea swallows a sponge:
no part left untouched.
Even at a distance fibrous energies intertwine
forming fine crystalline
that jab the mutual soul as we jostle and vie.
Still we lie
in our everlasting bower of
(without a breath of contempt),
growing wide and wild with the passage of time
until the very atoms split and recombine
past my night and your day—
ever expanding bloodbursts of love.
