Androgyne

when we are in love
we reach out for each other
with all of our similarities
that even a tree might
accidentally fall in love
with one of us
if it gets in the way

I reach out with my tongue as a knot
you talk to me in my Babel tongue
and use the knot to bind us together
you reach out with your childhood
I give you my first memories
and we have babies together
I reach out with my fears
you reach out with yours
and they both fear each other and melt

when we are in love
we reach out for one another
with whatever we lack
and I lack you
you hear me saying it
and your body comes to me in abundance

you reach out with your past
I kiss it out of you in bursts
you reach out with your unfinished work
I reach out with my imagination
and invite you to be fused in a mythical being

I used to use my right fist as a beating heart
you place yourself in my chest as a pulsar
then I close my ribs over your spark
gentle like an eyelid
