The Lines of His Face

Lukewarm milk, a treaty of tongues
with the plunge of your hands
against the scream of an alarm-clock.

A sigh of relief - not today - with a smile towards you.
We're lighter with every rabbit-nosed smile.

Your marble arms of warmth
contrasting your onyx hair, 
cascade. You lift me
like a buttercup in sunlight.

Your fingers like ivy, 
your voice like a violin
playing on my heart's beat.
