hydrangea close-up


Breathe for me,
he said

I sent you
into this world
to be my body

Breathe, as if I were
the sweet air
moving through you

breathe, at each first light
when you wake as if

build your world again
out of my love

breathe me in
fill yourself slowly

keep me inside you
and breathe out

we will be
the first move your body makes
and then the next

breathe for me,
give me joy

let me be the first
and the last love
holding you
