Tracings

Tracing of lines
           the poet
the painter
           the lover
fingers poring
           over a map
over a canvas
           or a body
hovering over
           a piece of paper
or keyboard
           the mind that sees
in sequence
           the voice
sings
           as it composes
love within
           the narrative
the trail we leave
           behind us
