Clawing It Back


…beloved sensation, return and take me

when the lips and the skin remember
and the hands feel as if they touch again.

and an old desire runs again through the blood

return often and take me at night.


With apologies to Constantine P. Cavafy (1863 – 1933).

This isn’t quite what he wrote.

Picked n’ mixed.
