time enough

One is fierce
the other has been convinced
bribed perhaps
with a promise
and so it is half fantasy
half fumbling mechanical
formulaic
construction
of exstacy
lovers for a moment
each putting other desires away
for the moment
and they lay with each other
for a time
for the time being
holding on and jumping off a tall cliff
into deep cold water
and not drowning
not enough to stop the breathing quite
but enough to make breathing difficult
and one clings to the other
who tries to support them both
with emotions swinging out of balance
catching the breath
and rueing the sharpness
lodging itself in the sinuses
art
love
beauty
youth
light
all this is here
for them
with them
hope even is here
and all taken mostly for granted
time enough for age
shame
resentment
regret
despair
at some later date
if ever
