To Niko

your ends-of-the earth stare

allows me to fall farther

than I dreamt

and be caught

by soft blue infinity


in thoughtful thoughtless

coos, you speak to me

receiving and returning,

the love pulled taut

between us


my hand on your solid

little rib cage buzzes

as your voice resounds

with contentment



then, joy like surprise

lightning flashes

across your iris

sky, ignites

a smile


eclipsing all,

welling from a source

so deep and pure

I couldn’t find it

without you
