  • His deception tumbles naked
    Into their smooth silence.
    He begs it back.
    She simply stares,
    Green eyes melting
    Into easy water.
    He pulls her
    To the edge of forgetting.
    She yields to the slow current
    Of a tender longing,
    Only to trail in the wake of his wave,
    A slice of madness on the feed.
