Dominique LarntzĀ * January 1, 2012 * “Love Letters To My Body”

This is Where I Live

I love my rich body,
and its pleasure
in pouring
into the world
like water.

I can sense a way
to hold myself
as I have spiraled
about you
and as I have been
the sweetest love letter
enveloped within
your arms.

There is no gratitude
physical enough
or loud enough
to express
the truth

that we ache
and arch
and reach
into mature creatures
as we see the seeds
of our identity
in the eyes
of our lovers.
