by Teri T Lahmon

We danced with angels once-

We saw their faces and called them by name
in the sacred places that knew no time;
Bathed in the light of their song
we learned mysteries since forgotten
and discovered our names written on the other's heart;

When they sent me to my mother
womb to moon I dreamt of you
and set aside from strange limbs and slutty kisses
what I knew was yours...

In the dark your breath resurrects those mysteries
and we recreate their song in tender notes
as our bodies renew the steps of a waltz
we learned before we knew time.
