The Familiar Cartographer

The Familiar Cartographer

I’ve grown weary of wandering
through my library gardens
sewing stitches of you into my
shelves of Plath and rows of Thomas;
imparting prints of foot and finger.

No longer am I surprised
when I find you smiling:-
woven into:
My McDaniel
My Parker
My Adamson-
like old friends
enjoying a burgundy
at a Tuesday matinee.

I don’t want to patch my clothes
from the inside anymore.
Or trap you between Pound and Tranter
for fear you may
catch the wind…

When all I really want
is to:
absorb the nervousness from your unwashed skin,
inhale the sticky warmth of your breathing
and place your hands-
in the small of my back
in the pit of my crotch
venomously around my neck
start again.

oh honey
