"What is a poet? An unhappy person who conceals profound anguish in his heart but whose lips are so formed that as sighs and cries pass over them they sound like beautiful music". Soren Kierkegaard


clumsy fingers
struggling to free you of your
Rage Against the Machine
t-shirt -
padded palms smoothing ,
searching
for a tell-tale arch,
deftly straining for an emphatic
sigh
as trillions of nerve endings
stand at attention,
prepared to harness the
electricity
in a touch
and present it
to a faltering
Heart.
