IslBGI knew it when
I popped the car hood
instead of the gas tank lock
and you
without chastising
pressed it shut
the movement of your muscles
against your pink shirt
a combining of female and male energy
my Korean acupuncturist said
ill-health comes from imbalance
and I
may love a girl
with a neck like a tropical flower
but we flow through one another
yin and yang
taking branches of each others
life force
gathering energies like streaks of rain
hitting the windscreen as we drive
listening to old songs
hand in hand
