in the loving of you

in the loving of you
in the living of truth
where you need to say nothing
where you are a thesaurus on fire
where you are a nightingale in a mirror
where you are a phoenix in a christening font
where you are a book atop ahead about balance
where you are a translation of something unsaid
where you are a river dreaming of a windshield
where you are a sparrow in a game
where you are a cat with dream paws twitching
where you are lightbulb lit in the switching

heartbeat drumskin rhythm
dipping feet into the mirror
