Coquette and Black Sun

Art of David Wiley

Confabulation of Love


If I see you as many things,

as if you yourself had many eyes,

were so many creatures

fashioned by the mind's hunger

for a large number of colors,

as if you had set

a multitude of beings into motion

and you were following all of them

with a certain sly attention

like a wise but worried mother;

if I see you as many things,

perhaps we are a continent

and an ocean.  You dangle

a prism between our eyes

and twirl it slowly

with the breath of your whisper,

with the musical caresses

of a million words bearing wings.

And I ascend into your nest

perched high above everything

I ascend into your chamber

of infinite possibilities, enchanted

by the range of your music;

I ascend into that heavenly space

where all is forgotten

where we lie together

where the universe entertains us.
