A Bicycle Poem

"Bicycle Poem" by Noelle Kocot
There were cathedrals falling out of your eyes And your arms were the handlebars I held in an abbreviated dream of crushed petals Strewn across the limpid avenues. I said, “I have poems for you” But my words were lost in the wind. I said, “I love you” And you drifted into sleep. And so I said nothing and rode you in and out of the rooms Where we had stretched the boundaries of the soul Like an endless sheet And I felt you waking up between my legs.
