Reaching to Touch an Angel ~ the Nude on the Wall

i reach to touch
but you have turned away

i reach to touch your back
the spots where you hacked off the wings

but withhold my touch
because no man should touch you there

i long to reach through the ribs of your heaving back
that i might touch your blood red heart bird
as it flusters about in its rib cage

i evaporate
before you can turn . . .
