Bitter Clarity

I want to taste this desire
on my tongue,
taking big gulps of all
you have for me and it’s there —
I’m keenly aware —
staring back at me
as if Innocence is the last straw
to bask in the refreshing drops
of sweet delight at night
as if you separate
me

from the day
so that I might rest
with dreams
more complicated than they seem
stretched out before me
with an unfamiliar clarity
I have trouble recognizing as my own.
