The bouquet

I fell into a bouquet
of twinkling bliss
that night you flashed
your eyes (lightning

sparkles from somewhere
beneath those brown
globes I sometimes

orbit like a satellite
dependent on another
body together

in space) at me for
the first time. I’ve
been circling you, full-
hearted, ever since.
