Not Guilty

The squeak of my aloneness,

mambo of my forgiveness.

 

Let every late. night. star

call me King.

 

Could I say      out loud

that I still

 

say your name

under my tongue –

 

while you’re sleeping,

in

 

there –

and can’t believe it’s you?

 

You’ve come forth

as my own – a moment

 

not needing

of justification, for once – what an acquittal

 

of poetry
