Mixed Metaphor Us

how many days have we loved, and how
many been apart?          impossible
familiarity   —   and yet we love
hot as comet trails falling into
each others’ inevitable pull,
gravitation of like to like, one
spark between back and forth   —   shared ion
tracking dual orbits to bond us

molecular in that gone night back
in Millennium  .  .  .  echo of heels tapping
against my heart’s door, homemade pie in hand
outstretched as offering in metaphor
and we falling in close like lovers
dropped from cosmic tarot into life
