As much a part

In a slow drawn focus the concrete
Blocks that prop up my view of the sky
Morph soft and easy like double
Brie melting into a shirred close-up shot
Of the pores and the craters and the
Tiny colourless hairs that populate
This particular space, this winsome spot
Near your chin on your handsome face.

I am not confused that rigid edged
Substances surrounding us bend
And sweetly blend into the lines
Of your mouth or the crinkles around
Your eyes, I am not surprised for this house
Is as much a part of as all of you.
