Lamb home

Last night
your message sent me back.

I fell despite myself,
backwards and inside myself,
to a small protected place
where lambs wander home at night
to unravel.

The straight edge of the sheet,
the curve of your lips;
breathing you in and
sharing this,
the same moment on this earth.

When I came to
something else had come back with me.
If you had been here you would have felt it.

I would have made sure you felt it.

The heel of my hand,
the side of your nose;
your blood would have arced to my left
while I laughed at how sometimes
life imitates comics.

But you were not here.
All that was ours is now mine alone.

This is my story now
and in it you might say
my, what big claws you have pussycat.

And I would smile and say
all the better to take back what you stole from me,

my dear.
