“What's the Czech for ‘Do you love him’?” Guy, Once

i used to make you smile and laugh
aching for and with

as you, me

the attraction marrow-deep
pulling as if gravity

or god were a puppeteer—

(in the pictures you sent
you and yours are smiling

as i, looking at them)

do people carry tambourines
rattling the rhythms of song

as if a movie or music video?

because there are songs that pull
at me like you

my head rocking

the music and lyrics
stronger than the physics of planets

or deities with string

and it your song always
vibrating through me

as water or oxygen

tap dancing marionettes us
