You Do Great Good

you make it diffulcult

because you always come in

right as I’m about to fall asleep

and you kiss

between my shoulder blades

until I’m hard

and wide awake

and all wound up

you do great good.

you flip the record over,

rescue the needle from the hissing

popping netherworld

place it in the groove again.

you keep me close

like a balloon without a string

used as a bible to stop a bullet

held, protecting your heart

clamped by your thin wristed arms

covered in near invisible fuzz

you’re suitcase is packed

and you’re always leaving me

but as soon as you arrive

you’re on the line

inviting me to the water

to watch the lightning strike

way out there

on the foamed tips of waves

and so- of course, I come
