Only Valentine

My spirit abashed appalled
my body a tyrannical child
between this warring pair
I carefully set my soul
the one I can barely imagine
the other I can barely control
myself a ladder of ascending
and descending streams
eddies and perturbations
lightening flashes in mobs
so I can only know myself
as you the world the wind
this I which wills to write
its own erasure into him
