tumbledown light

We tossed and turned
the surf of nearness
too close to a far shore.

Seagulls screamed
to be fed
Otters rolled sensuously.

The Goddess
cracked open Her mirror.
I fell out of myself
to be Her moonlight.

I did not dance a step
but was buried and hatched
in a tumbledown sky.

She took Her time with me.
I took a long breath
under that place
where love paints its face.
