Her:

elbow to elbow,
two streetcorners to sit.

strike one:
flame through vision blurring,
a fluffy halo glows,

words to wish  

strike two:
flame of patience hibernating
in dandelion snow,

words to think.

strike three:
flame of star tail falling
to make me whole,

words to know.

i would like everything to count
forever please.

Him:

DAY 27
