Lay Naked, Tightwire Spring Issue 1986

Lay Naked
the valleys of your canyoned heart
so I might meander through them
and forge the rivers to your mind
as I do time.

Let me burrow in the dark foliage
of your thoughts
so I can protect them from the evils of others
that somersault about your head.

And I will love you for you.

Let me take each thought as a growing egg
to candlelight and sight the flaws
And I will love you for you.

Lay naked
the valleys of your canyoned heart
and I will unveil mine to lay beside you
so you will love me for me.

And I will love you for you.

B.J.H.
