Unlike Men

Now it’s so unlike men,
That I kept things,
That I wanted to say
Afraid that I might
Lose you again,
I hid them away.
Otherwise If I could,
I’d follow you anywhere.
To hell or to the fire that’d
Rise from you.
Wherever it is that you,
Find me latticed in blues,
Transcend in me some love,
Or hush in me that what’s
Left unloved or two.

Send me off to the hangars,
Let the hopes anchor down,
To Wular’s deepest.
As for a bit of sorcery,
I’ve dreams of you.
I see us around a fire,
& one sky so reckless.
No stars or moon,
Just to keep
All the wolves away.
