i want to be ready

it’s late and i’ve

outstretched the thought of you


the elasticity of my wonder

has been pulled

into fatigue and now

i am dreamy

and full up with want


even though it fades

with the days

i go without you,

i have not been able to

abandon the impulse

that keeps you on my mind


somewhere between

memory and practice,

you have touched my neck

and given me

spark and spirit


i am abundant with your influence

and moving through maybes,


all night,

preparing to love
