Reverie on a Theme

It's a hunger.
It's a raft in a flood.
It's a pitiful wound.
The tide in a lonely bay,
Insanity of a saint,
The echo of silence,
Sleepless weeping,
Call of the nightjar,
Triangulated moonbeam,
Shared time,
When summer performs cartwheels.

It's a song on a loop,
Merry-go-round of the heart,
Plaintiff squeak of a mouse.
It's waiting for a letter,
The sound of your own name,
Transfiguration of another's.
The grumble of a pet.

It's a mating call,
Howl of the night wolf,
Dove on a windowsill,
Waiting for bread,
Help of a teacher for an idiot,
Note left out on a table -

Your love's in the microwave.
