love / certainty
I love you, your steady turbulence
the chilly warmth of your gaze
the calming way you sing gratitude,
before raging into the world,
through certainty and paranoia,
your wanderer’s feet
circle back to me.
of me, you are sure.
by a miracle of mind-making,
when you doubt everything else,
reconsider, reconfigure, abandon, redo,
you return to the warm smile of my love,
and you, my modern cowboy,
my elusive forest creature
my electric raging storm
you push me to widen my eyes
to look bigger, walk farther.
holding your hand, I step closer
to the way I envision myself,
sure of, simply, you.
