spirals – adem

March 30, 2008

you marked
the back of my hand
you drew a heart
and some tiny dots
and a spiral
which reminded me
of the Milky Way
and it made me think

of our galaxy
and Andromeda
felt like you and me
were like the way we are
they couldn’t feel as vast
and if they join
at six billion lives per second
and they danced around
linking spiral arms
as they’d spin
spin through infinity
they couldn’t feel as vast
as I feel now

galactic tectonic shifts
in my chest
and behind my eyes
and yet the smallest vibration
like the touch of your pen
makes my hair makes my hair stand on end

you marked
the back of my hand
you drew a heart
and some tiny dots
and a spiral
which together spell
‘i want you’
in electricity
