lure

What does it
Make me if
I cannot
Touch you where
It hurts most
Touching: In

The spaces
Where I must
Enter you
As a cast
Shadow yet
You are the

Only light
I borrow—
Cleft to your
Steady flame
I wear your
Soot in shame.

[from the series “einstein entries: book iv” of the six-book poetry collection Mantra.X, circa 1988 by titus toledo]
