Strange Medicine



A morning teaspoon
taken with tea
opens the seams
of my being
to the possibilities
of you.

A dose
poured over ice
in the afternoon
quells the white heat
the need
for you.

One capsule
crushed in heady wine
by the light of an opal moon
makes silk of bones
and velvet
of skin.

This enchantment by you
the true lodestone
is........strange medicine.
