Significant Other, Signifying

A rhetoric of gestures, yes,
when flesh lends definition here:

within our eyes

(to find your mind)
(to know my soul)

conjunctions wedding
sense and breath

linguistic limbs, which intimate
an eloquence no poets grasp.

Semantics whisper
kiss to kiss.

Two fluent tongues
translate the flame.

The unheard heartbeats
shall proclaim

(as hands can have
their grammar, too)

because such touching
needs no verbs.

Our love affirms
above all words.
