I hold myself up
a self-referential gesture
to examine
this thing
I am
I am

my identities clash
become a single storm
in the night

across the city
away from the drag
of our daily lives
you let me peer in
into you

we are cut from moans
truths of a flame
home and observation

a gift of dreams
opens my heart
gills breathe deep
peering into
I am

I am
