"And if I fall in fear and longing?" -- Galway Kinnell


then the heart becomes a ragged dervish
so close to being out
of control becomes the key
to be swallowed locking the box
forever becomes a sapphire
sky coaxing the diver
not to pull the cord
trust me it breathes
into your hair a hard kiss
on impact
