Corseted

I untied your corseted back
pulled laces from steel rings
and they ran down
the expanse of your body

Peeled apart that vertical space
between your shoulders and hips
pulled back a door guarded by your spine
and entered with you

We walked through
gated gardens
curtained secrets

Observed forgotten memories
made love in dark alleyways of thought
xxxxxxxxxxhowled through streets
xxxxxxxxxxwhere you once walked infatuated

We read unfinished manuscripts
devoured entire libraries
inside your mind
forgotten knowledge at the foot of a river
flowing back to long before you were
conceived
xxxxxxxxxxto its mouth where you and I
xxxxxxxxxxfloated from long ago
xxxxxxxxxxbefore we were ideas
xxxxxxxxxxlaced together
