old fire

in the space
     between silence and goodbye

i pressed you 
    against a wall
          parting your closure


thinking it haiku 
a violent surrender evoked shuddering change
miscommunication--pale thigh sweats
and talk of courage

our brave misdemeanors echo 
assured state of self--

the gravity of regret

we are wave open ended question and answer
born in a brothel of cool light made warm
by demand
our demand -- popular and unrelenting
sweet jazz voice vocal in her ear

and the spirit has got me
taken me away to swing sing of essence 
parting closure
warm breath against the wall

trailing off sense
silence and goodbye
