Swim the lengths of your love
M A Heathcote
Put your emotions into a fishbowl and forget!
Swim the lengths of your love and lusts, passionate, from the outset.
Bathe in those circle passages, time wills; never the same!
Life’s a fairground-attraction, with only fears left too blame!
Make love to these point-blank-beauties that stop you; deathly—Still...
Make love, lie down, cling "too" like the happy, hapless sloth with freewill...
Affirm, affirmations, affections, ah, the need, within...,
Press-deeply-upon a sunburst-shaped heart that breastpin,
Unfasten; unleash Apollo’s sword flaming arrows...
Before that dust in stillness, hammers out her deathblows.
