i want to build
my house up
in your arms,
solid as an oak
tree.  i want to
gather all your
kisses like the leaves.

i want to plant
my future at your 
center, beneath
the bony sternum
like the bark.  i want
to carve my initials
on your heart.

L  M  Z

i want to lay
my shadow down
at your feet

and join your shade
and join your shade
