Your Lock

Your lock is more delightful to me than a hundred keys – Jalal al-din Rumi

It is the missing clasp of your body
that shudders me awake,
and before I fall asleep,
I replay all the tightly
wound metal
of our kisses, all
the ways our bodies
resisted, all
the ways we
came unhinged,
let a thousand doors
fall from their
places, a thousand
bees fly from
their nests.
