My lady bends light and time

Like blades of grass under bare feet

She reaches through

And fixes in me what was badly made

Stringing days on fishing line

To save for me like pictures that never fade

My love drowns oceans

And slows planets down

In quick glances and bows

She warms the cold places in me

And shades me from the heat

When soft is want she is soft found

And sturdy when I’m falling down

My darling holds atoms intact

And rubs borders off maps

She lullabies and hums

Runs from my one idea

To the next

As they escape

She ties them around her waist

And lets them spin a tidy revolution

Anchored by her

She doesn’t even know it
