Impasse

in lieu of making you the boat and the oar / I have found another way to reach the shore / I am no longer stranded / like tendrils of hair desperate to be held together / I am not marooned / except when you wear that shirt / when you wear that shirt / then remove it / I want you / and this love that hurts / to hurt / right here / I want your sweat on my skin / our sweet melancholy / our holy suffering / I lift my cup to drink / you pour / you know best how to part waters / and still not take me home
