The Lovers – A Poem

Below the surface of the water a large orange koi fish menaces a white silk butterfly which hover just at the surface of the canvas. In the corners of the canvas layers of burlap are pulled back to reveal a green snake and an angery skull in a top hat with a bottle of alcohol and a dagger.
The Lovers

Both bodies are mature
Glittering in their stars
Survivors of a thousand explosive dances
Yet
All models show
Despite the silent infinity of space
Entanglement is inevitable
The rough gravitations will circle first
Fingertips tease til
Sparkling arms lock.
They will dance
Enchained.
At their hearts, black holes
One will consume the other.
The only question is which is more thirsty?

I wrote The Lovers a number of years back. It is in some ways a poem of meditations on how even behavior can be viewed as a fractal pattern.
