Injection of Fate

How long the world cocooned
You from me – held
Warmth in such suspense
Those shivering nights
As I lay close to prayer.

There was a choking
Of ice that night too,
Till your flash of blue
Bit me deeper than death,

Till the air and dusk
Injected my neck like
Venom, needle-sharp
Heroin I had hovered
In cold for,

And there was a scolding
Heat rushing my blood
Like religion – like a
Carnal electricity

Catching our flesh
In its current,
Paralysing reason as
It taught us to breathe
And fly and glide.
