|In the blue of a flame, an ocean, a sky.
We are well-defined
in the obvious
food, sex, laughter, song.
I accept your guitar
and understand your hands.
You understand my chaos
and accept my need
to outwardly order things.
Sleight-of-hand; my manifest patina
to deflect scrutiny
of a disorderly mind
and a mutinous heart.
(I don't know any more than you
why I love you always, sometimes)
You have called me anchor,
kissed my rope-burned palms
I have witnessed your knight,
crossed your chivalrous cloak
thrown down on dirty water.
Yet, for all the elements,
for all the ropes and ladders
there still exists this aether;
the candle's blue flicker
where you drift, and I

sweet! my chaos-grrl sounds the deep with a glint and a wink; it's called the Pauli-effect - wiki it
Thank you JK, appreciated.
Alch--I googled Pauli-effect but not making a connection between it and this fender-bendered relationship I have with this man..?
pedestrian poem. particularly unaffected by 1-4.
