One-night stand


I had blitzed your sectors
completely
But all this time you’ve survived
discretely

Interred in my one-terabyte drive:

Knight jonesing for escape, five fingers
dismissing
Passion, fondling my door handle,
kissing

Goodbye our too-easy improvisation.

I conjure desperate devious
strategies:
Charms, supplications, jammed connections,
elegies,

Viral replications, heartfelt blackmail.

Impatient, lover? Hanging in the
delusion
Of my blue-screened doorway, our fungible
collusion

Of dull bruises, ragged tears?

Confusion, lust and memory
conceived
Phantom on phantom, our names elusive,
retrieved

By one for another. Here’s what sinks me:

Your face.

Its invisible
weight.
