We have this kinetic
connection. This signal conducted
by impulse, electrical,
perpetual. Are you
ten thousand miles away
or next to me,
touching my face? 

Maybe we are mirror-image
rays of light, butterfly-
dancing through the wires,
fighting, flying,
intertwining. I want to know
where you are. I want to hear
your voice. I want to see
who you’re with. I want to be
near to you. 

Kinetricity, bathed in
icy blue-light beside lava lamp-
light the shadows of my soul
and the corners of my heart.
particles making waves,
sending rays of love

to you.

Poet’s Notes

This is another poem about love. As a companion to this one, you should read my poem “The Smoky Room,” which is an old-school take on love. This one, as you can probably tell, is the modern version: electro-love. I hope you’ve enjoyed it! Please tell me in the comments what you think. I’d love to hear your voice!
