from LoveTouch ii.

butterflies and angels

        butterflies and angels

   with wings we enter each other

for incandescent

                 fluttering moments

flickering our mouths

                      (like moths)

       for brief eternities

           (of touch)

   circling the shining glory


          we plunge in

        our wings aflame

     the flame consumes us

        into the bright

    metamorphosis of light
