A Moment Certified By Lovers

A Moment Certified By Lovers.

It's a certifiable moment
a punch-drunk second
a pulse's high tide.

A dog eats grass
a water drop shivers
a barrel fills to its brim
an apple falls 
a body drifts 
a face buckles
a lover screams.

At the tip of an orgasm
passion powders;
the creek turns to dust.
                                           from Sunfire, (Dedalus Press, 1997)
