Love’s Tender Violence

December 14, 2008


We lost all sense
of love’s tender violence
as we raided each others dreams,
invaded convenient bodies whole,
and stole their ghosted voices;
renewed actors in an unrehearsed play
pulsating images of fluent whimsy
across a foreign planet’s stage,
we lit an impassioned sky
of love’s tender silence
where its invisible ink
will never
