I hate our distance and I love it yet—
I burn on a pyre of sororal devotion and
I pine in a forest of evergreen, esurient phantasy—
I approach and retreat simultaneously to you as
Artemis to Apollo and as Venus to Nerites—
I drown my lungs with veridical, bitter rapport
And I breathe with gills of oneiric sugared ardency.
