The Belonging
With the crystal no longer in place
Frigid vapour invading a room
Condensation from gasping to cumulus
Dissipate vapour
Dissipate sounds
Relentlessly bound towards heat
The belonging must wrestle
The gull “V” again
Trapped wingless fingers again
Motion towards
The sightless uphill approach
Approaching the vapour
Skin ripples reciting
The nipples like cairns on Winter hills
The belonging is moving
The belonging to each other
Each other to belong
This might be the darkest
But the sight is enclosed
While fingers unrested
And the motion of toes
If it’s down to belonging
Then it fits like a glove
Bring back to extremities
As they grow back to be alive
The bees are bewildered as the honey sneaks back to the hive
With the beams and the crosshairs displaced
The belonging snakes stealth
Through Winter land place
Core breathing abstained
As the floor slips away
The shimmer-sounds, sleek in the ear
Surrounding the head
As the limbs spring to life
That love is incredulous
It’s strapped blue icon
You belong to the stars
But you can’t navigate the room
Vision dictated
By the dead space of air
The cumulus burrowing
In the back of your throat
Dreaming beyond
The sightless uphill approach
Try to expand
I’m sure you can do it without hands
We belong to those stars
We belong to this room
As the limbs spring to life
They’ve never been so still
