Richard Townley

whisper you.
In the cloistered chambers of my mind
I whisper you.
Incantation of a whale's soft, sobbing moan
Surreal, divine

I whisper you at sunset,
Shadowed figure in my window;
Touch you, taste you, breathe you, know you
Only in my fevered mind's eye.

I whisper you in darkness,
Fingers touching, needing, knowing
Whale sounds issue in our drowning
In the pool of one another.

I whisper you, I whisper you,
My love's soft incantation.
I drown in you,
Sink down in you,
'Til you waken in my arms.
