3rd Temperament g

I met the prince
of mirrors
this morning
reflections of his image
on this silver plane
confused me

he juggled
and circles

slight of hand

straight lines
and well scribed arcs
were his play

when he made his show
of angles
measured circumferences
his radius was light
Pythagoras was living
and on this good morning
I was still confused

he soon forgot

the secrets
of being left breathless
exposing the unknown
in feeling awe
he felt that you and I
might see him
displaying some emotion

even now
I think thats why
he fired
his gun at us
I think thats why
he missed

Do you
want to
dance with me
stand forever
in this
guarded silence

accept our time
in this place
and move with me
and hold me

Each time I taste
your summer lips
ambiguous allusions
are cast
toward any degree
caring friendship
and deepest love
as if I am playing
some romantic
game of chance

When I bent to whisper
of love
in her ear

I noticed
at the nape of her neck
three tiny red spots
that if connected
would form
an equilateral triangle

That famous
question mark
resting so quietly
the words of love
can be seen
as I erase my own wantings
and make room to write
of the need in experiencing
only what is best
for you

If we invited
to enjoy this beauty
our intimacy

As I stared
at you
every thing

while silently naming
all his faults

in prayer

I removed the mark
that identified
my thoughts

you have thought
about that mark
since its removal

tried to
consider it
when I was
still there
for you

2nd Temperament f

In the warm black
night of thought
you can be transferred
from a cabinet
to a case or a pedestal
where you are displayed
and related to
as if you were
every woman
I have ever known

all of your mannerisms
reenact themselves
on some stage
of my perception
forcing these thoughts
into fairness
and reminding me
you are tonight

When we
are not together
and I think of you
I wonder
if you have

and if those thoughts
are approving
or not

do you ever
find yourself
thinking that way too

2nd Temperament d

With a silent
movement of his fingers
down her arm
he grasped her hand
for a momentary squeeze
and then let go

their casual touching
intrigued me
for a longer time
than they held hands
