  • I will come for you in your city of towers

    of howling expressways

    of banyan trees made islands

    of hope searching reclaimed earth.

    I will leave a hint of fingerprints on double-glazed windows

    tight against dust and tempest,

    heat and loss.

    I will come inside the bubbles of your laughter and

    blow them larger. They will envelop us and carry us away, high and careless and

    dizzy-me-ree, over the pulsing sea. When the bubbles burst we will float back to

    earth like dreams who are still learning.

    I wear the garb of anymood, tailored for seasons that

    wear at knee and elbow, that tug at forelock and conscience, that are

    ready to be shucked before known but are worn on

    regardless. Nothing ceases. Life is too

    big to fail.

    Dust is bustled aside. Ants set in order their sacred homes. Air calms its

    quarrels between high and low pressure with

    swords sheathed, uneasily.

    I am called to walk where your feet have walked. I place my steps

    gently within yours, testing for fit.

    I will hear the breath of your sleep. You chant hyms in Tibetan. I

    sit on my mountain-peak of nothingness, watching you.

    You are reflected in planes circling, landing, resting and

    grazing on asphalt fields.

    I glide in the ether of expectation.

    Trepidation.

    Anticipation.
