by Alfonse Battistelli
my day swathes diamond
luster into life: the sweet sparkles,
blushing to restore what
i hold dear
we mingle through hours
with gentle hands together: touching…
our refractive senses
speckling at the ease of our pleasure,
the cuts of us
greaten the greatest of mere sums.
our layering, my precious—
the better measure of our love.
