beauty be sweet
beauty be rare
be full of sorrow
spilling everywhere

beauty say things round and ripe
beauty say things blu and light
things in the night

she be lover
continents away from
her lover

she wrap lavender sheets tight
lean in to her scoot in close
leap into dark, holding hands
touching. come out
full of courage
be loved
