"Where is Intimacy?
(If she is not in the bottom of a martini glass?)
Where does she go when the sun shines?

How does she grow
And thrive?
How does she bloom into herself?
Bravely, elegantly, naturally.

What does she look like
With bed hair at 11am,
Behind her book, or beneath her phone?

What does she do
When panic or desire
Fate steps in?

(Who is she the next morning?)

How does Intimacy
If she is not confident, infatuated, besotted?

Where does she escape to?
To heal? Feel herself? Listen?

When Intimacy steps into the door and sees you,
Bright, willing, vulnerable, anticipatory,

(And so she
Shies backwards.)

(Her excitement and understanding roadblocked with doubt, fear, anxiousness, premature development, late high school, disrespecting lovers, disrespectful acts of love from others and also herself -- as a lump in her throat.)
She says nothing.
She goes nowhere.

She turns around
And walks back
Into my anima."
