He says he

wants to worship

at my feet.

I say I am a mere mortal,

the sum of

life’s victories and


He says

that my forehead

radiates the sun;

that there no one

who has

enchanted him

so sweetly

and completely.

The casual garments that

I put on

are akin to luxurious robes

in his eyes.

With me,

He feels worthy

and capable,

His mind is at peace,

because my body

is his new temple.
