(then love)

love, then.  then, love.
and then.  long pause.  and
   detour.  distraction.
gnashing of teeth.  spinning circles.
           and then hanging
upside down in the vampire cave.  wrapped up
     in a spider web.  and then.   the airplane
falling from the sky.   or taking off.  and the whale
   swallowing you.   and darkness.
darkness without shadow.   and then.
    a little light.   and then.   love.   love.  and then.
  hiding under the covers.   spilling coffee on the pillow.
       laughing at the squirrels outside.   and then.
 long kiss.   all washed away into rush of swirling light.
   no time.  sensation flood of spirit.  body.  a grounding.
   and then.   love.   love.   and then.   another day
          to be in
love.
