Modern Day Love

Happens,

In kitchens,
When onions are cut
And sulfur's in the air
And droplets of joy hop around

In temples
When you pray for me
And I watch your shoes
Weaving cocoons, my head to your toe

Behind car panes
As I hurriedly smear color
On my lips, into your heart
And all world  turns red

At office gates
When you smile for me
And I wish for you, as we step into,
Alternate worlds, away from ours

Along dirty beaches
When I catch some peace
And you breathe in spirits
One to surge, the other to ground

When in bright-dark nights
You walk those dreams
And  I watch your thoughts
We exchange smiles, fondly aware,
Of melting roles and shrinking spaces.
