Again and again (ghazal version)

As light as hammocks we rock, you near me, stranger
The bones drinking skin like water, you fear me, stranger

Again and again we breathe hard ragged air not the same
You watch the overheard sweetness sear me, stranger

Little girl, skirted man, bearded strummer, dreamer on canvas,
You are legion, your wings and your wild patterns steer me, stranger

As simple as steps on a mopped wooden floor in the night
As old as the secrets that mock and jeer me, stranger

These words my smoke rings your night dreams tomorrow the signal

It stabs a weird rightness when somehow you hear me, stranger
