I Long To Be Your Alchemist
I long to be your alchemist and capture the day’s canary yellow rays,
to pack them safely away within my smile,
for your eyes only,
warming you to the bone.
I long to be your alchemist and turn the gray flannel of the evening
to a bejeweled silver,
seething with sparkle and spirit.
I long to be your alchemist and blend an erotic elixir out of all our nows and yesteryears,
one served naked and cautionless,
and a side of sass.
I long to be
the incorrigible alchemist you are to me.
