The Bodies Between (A Poem)



Time is
Three minutes ‘till midnight
And I pull
The shine of my skin
Between us
Like a starry sky.
Three candles resurrect
The shadows
Of so many sleeping things,
And the wall becomes
A beating flame
Of abstraction.
And us
In moon white,
The floating earth orbs,
Thirsty of this long day,
We pour the atmosphere
Full of each other
Like tiliting cups
Of cheap coffee and cocoa.

Written from a prompt at Poets United.
