Manna Gum



1.

The halfmoon often peeked

between the fields of clouds


hoping I bow to my desires

and kiss the girl

through this timeless night


yet I gazed

not into your cobalt eyes

but at the pit of fire


imagining


you'd keep me warm

better

than these flames ever will


- and you know I will too


that we can dally with tenderness

without a care in the world


that you can rest your body and soul

on me at anytime you wish


... it's the least I can do


a spirit like yours

makes mine

copacetic



2.


still


I sense an eventual collapse


my air to your fire

may be too much

or

too little


friendship comes in many forms

and I suppose

that

is true


but it's difficult to accept


our bond as such.
