Comfort Zone

Comfort Zone

When rainbows evaporate
and flowers burst into dust
When the rivers
become bloodstreams
I'll bloom
and sing like a bird

I'll scoop you up
and into my arms
Bone by bone, hair by hair
Your fair skull
against my heaving chest

We'll talk
of philosophy and science
of gods and devils
with love at the center
as a fire

And when it burns down
And when it burns down
I will bury you     again

my only love.
(From the book Selected Poems 2004-2007)
