A Map of the Body in Love

Each of us has a map of somewhere
stenciled on the body--it's just
a matter of who will see this nearly
spiritual self getting activated
under a sign in the sky that looked
like doom--there it was, a lost
comet heading for the sun.  We were
dumb enough to assume its aim was
the trajectory all of us take, getting
lighter, getting closer
to heat each time
we pass each other.  What I'm saying
is that there's no way to see
what you see but I know
the galaxy's spine like I know
your brown back sometimes,
touching me in the night 
of our newly found sleep.
