one day old

time held into being

curiosity without intimidation

gazing intimately

with needs.

For quiet,

darkness,

motion,

not too much.

something to look at

slowly,

steadily finding the order.

Steadily moving the steps

into sequences

with purpose.

alert to the signal

of air restricted,

your body a power

with delicacy.

agilely your cues will inform actions

liberated from panic,

steadily ceding this order

for quieter

darker

motionful

steadiness.

two peoples energies

practice

slow intimacy.
