Seen too much

Because the moon wasn’t showing
that’s why in the end I kissed you on the belly
 of the hill.
Because you gave me redemption, carefully 
folded to fit between dry citadel stones, 
or vegetables, or sweaty copper faces 
on a harbor, watching moored ships sink, 
that’s why i pressed your body 
into something resembling an ocean.
Because i understand loneliness
 to be a measure of the distance 
from yourself, and madness 
just sanity with teleconferencing,
that’s why i let you pull me, ear by ear,
toward a prior dream.
