TRACING LIGHTLACE

by Madeline Jarboe

And tracing lightlace by the magnolias,
you will seek your bolide bride,
becoming branches, breaching darkness.

Dispelling dread at every street light,
seeing every door as angel's wings,
and tracing lightlace by the magnolias.

Threading desire like wielding steel,
which echoes glare of conjured comets,
becoming branches, breaching darkness.

Your lips learn my lattice constants,
your kisses creating crystallography,
and tracing lightlace by the magnolias.

Until your sails fall across still seas,
building bridges formed from spider's silk,
and tracing lightlace by the magnolias,
becoming branches, breaching darkness.
