Never by Lannie Stabile

Suddenly,
never
is a gaping, gasping breath I can’t catch up to
A damp and heavy awareness in my thoughts

Never
has become a risk of dark, dancing glances,
whispering fingers, and long, laughing necks

Never
has bled into two red songs, curved upward,
begging to whistle between these ready lips

Never
is now, now is then, and then was everything
And it feels like centuries have been tied to us

Suddenly,
but also
oh so
slowly
