intim(id)ated by those brief best friends,

that quickened pulse we both felt

darkened, as we (un/dis)covered

every possible \subject\

with careless blind/drunk hands.

we praised Our Father, the morning

a rousing clarity for the mind.

my favor(ite day) spent, alone

with my mountains and valleys,

I breathed freedom and knew

(you hadn't seen) my true self.
