woman

can reach through and
beyond sex to find real
affinity; beyond touch
and skin to examine
ourselves–
see what is there,
behind her eyes.
See a reflection that
fastens and fuses
another part of ourselves,
with our self.

It isn’t something you
see in him; your lover,
your father, your son.
It isn’t from opposition
we are cultivated,
but rather the counterpart.
This is apperception given
to only us; in her dark hair
and her brackish eyes;
the way they outline
our breath and give to us
words.
