Aurora Borne!

First touch—
first real connection

We spoke
We saw each other

Under her heavy
glowing

I could not hide
not even from myself

(nor could you, I suspect)

Under layers of tinkling foil
fingertips traveled like tributaries of the
Nile
connecting life—
mine to yours,
ours to hers.

I became I; borne
a complete firmament
unto myself.

Aurora!
