"feel so close"
so close right now to you i feel no doubt;
no loss, no cross, no dross shall e'er impede
our course, niagaran as your keen spout
which 'bounding drowns my desert, blooms my seed.
enfolded thus, emboldened thus, i dare
gallant feats, bear sad defeats, flaunt votive
motifs set in stone, make show to declare
'fore the world, brashly expose my 'motive
vessel 'pon my arm, emblazoned, scarlet.
fortune cheer'd, we've tripp'd the light ecstatic
and twirl'd 'neath a sky moon-lasso'd starlit.
our nearness broadcasts bright through dark static:
though fever'd feet an aisle have never tread --
vanquish'd vain denial -- we two are wed!
