Antecedent

Posted on 13 February 2010

What came before–where once was flesh      heat

                                                 where once was heat

vacuum. There was a time when we did not exist

                                                 before we burst

into flame or flower. First of two vectors in a dyad:

                                                 the state of twoness.

Two things. Two people engaged in            ongoing

                                                 interaction–

the interaction itself. Scoot over                  make room

                                                 for me.

Your mouth–your name–the grammatical

                                                 relationship

between us. The words we need not say            or cannot

                                                 hear.

The way a secret whispers its own name      or offers

                                                 its own reason

for being–the way a kiss begs to be a promise.
