ST VALENTINE’S DAY

see how the light hits
shadow flits on a clear day,
figure how the eight runs
wild!
a dog chasing tail,
a snake collapsing into myth,
a sluice over the Keys
and the beats, breathe an oval
champagne-shaped and breast-sized

fit your lips to my glass,
slide down my throat
the sound and taste of love

don’t blow it, baby,
play it—oh behave!
track it, crack it,
put me on the rack
for it—apologies,
I’ve never been
in love before

french-fry me, italicise me,
cauterise me—
my wound’s still fresh

Cole and Porter me, to be precise,
every note you write supports me
your silence haunts me,

as if I could forget
your fingers on the clef
