A Venture For Lips

Fall in head dive
as if it were time
our souls combine;
keep heart divine.

I’m stepping out
to the back room
so when I return
see what looms.

I need medicine
so heal me deep
in a calm take in
soft pillow sleep.

Outside windows,
chasms of a mind,
the day arrives at
appropriate times.

A tune swells to it
a heart’s pulse sits
on shoulders grip
as I venture to lips.
