I rub salve
            in all your fissures hoping
  you’ll let me make the decisions tonight
    because if I didn’t love you/
       I wouldn’t be consistently leaningagainst                      

         your shadowed
                                      doorstep

                            waiting for your light
                                  [meteor-fleeting-not/
                                       hot ball of fire, sun]

                    Everything is smoking
                     & I’m playing with the shards
                  seeing you as you dare not see
                                         yourself

& if I’m making you blush
          it’s a good thing
  it means: this peppermint oil is cooling
      shhh…         ●  I’ll be your tourniquet|
