hummingbirds lead my lover in closer
to greet me; head knelt in lullaby,
holding a smile in his hands.
they hold me in closer to enjoy
the speed of his heart -- marked up with chalk,
held together with clips.
the music of his soul twirls into me,
to caress the sounds of his melody, now perched in my ear,
like a gentle tea cup
warmly stirring inside my mind.
i let my eyes roll to feed the channel --
connectivity is the closest
we'll ever see ourselves
inside the other
