that smile of yours

that smile of yours

Birth of Venus
Sandro Botticelli, ‘Nascita di Venere’ (The Birth of Venus), c. 1484–1486.

you weren’t
born yesterday
there are
some years
washed out
under that
bridge
you didn’t just
step out of the
celestial garden
naked
delicious
with dew
(look now,
i’ve undressed you)
yet your smile
is newer than
the minute,
ahead
my every
leap of
heart
you
are
the
very
brilliance
that’s yet
to shine
hidden still
dark matter
they call it
between
the
stars
let it
blow
