Electric fingertips
probe the soft fault-lines
of flesh,
replenish warmth
upon dull, frozen skin.

Something about “friend”
leaves us frosted inside—
detached;
only half (alive).

We are lovers
without the kissing,
soulmates
without the bulls***.
Like Shakespeares of intimacy,
we sculpt new words
to define the bond
of your hand to my spine.

Our clasped hands
ignite the earth,
drop a red-hot glow
against Winter’s glare.

With love (invincible),
hope (eternal),
our flesh infuses—
we melt
together.
