Chromophilia (song for B) (aka Love is energy, of course it is)

Yes yes yes I know all
you want is order and calm,
white spaces where darkness
can’t hide then pounce to drag
you back to the lair you left –

but but but this is what life
could be, the fizzy sun blessing
our kisses, hearts rioting when
our hands touch, a spray of
electricity with every kiss, kinetic
joy wrapped in a palm leaf –

sure sure sure still is good,
but only after we collapse
in a happy heap, spent.
