Your face

Your face in sleep
a dream of ancient lands,
my face, our hands,
the angle of the light.

We touch our fingertips
reach out , we’re always
out of reach, saliva stretched
as threads of make believe.

We are pregnant with meaning
enveloped by a skin of purpose
exhausted by the heat of this,
opening ,skin drenched into

emptiness.
