Let Nothing Rest Between Us

Let nothing rest between us
Save the tiny molecules of air
Trapped between our two bodies
Entwined under a new moon
Surrounded by an audience of stars
Reflected off the glassy surface
Of a quiet spring which nourishes
A teeming plain, full of rattlesnakes,
Pronghorn, and my captive heart.
