They Say (1)

They say,
that watches in ads
are typically set to 10:10,
so we’ll lend our bodies
to noon-pitched hammocks;
as the hands of time
swing us into futures ago.

For every cursory minute
too minute to reclaim
we’ll congest our present,
the solaced moments
and surely the surly spells,
within the chest
of our past;
baptize them
in the horizon
of second chances
so we’ll always be
graced with forgiveness
by sunrise.

They say,
that watches in ads
are typically set to 10:10,
so I’ll hold you
at the zenith of every day
to be framed,
as if we were the logo
of infinity.

I’ll still plant kisses
at the axis of your lips,
as if our weekly forecast
was filled with nothing
but mistletoe mornings
and titillating eves.
Your cheeks
will scintillate of blushes
brighter than imploding stars,
your smile
will substitute quasars
in our milky way,
our wrists
will beam of pulsars,
legends nailed
to silent scripts;
we’ll be
tongue-twisted red-shifts
light-years
beyond scars.
