The Mystery of Coupling

Swooning into volupté, and cherry-picking fact,
ignoring any evidence that might reveal a crack,

forging on, perhaps, to change the story in the love –
while undergoing alchemies that undertake to shove

the fragile apparatus of an intimacy forward:
finding just the breath that seems more heard

within a heart than can be uttered in a pact,
the mystery of coupling will, we think, remain intact.
