Impending

        for A. A.
 
When the storm moves away, as I do.
When the storm        touching.
When the hand is leading.
When the hand         the light.
When the eye takes what it wants.
When the eye           and not touching.
The hand between slats of a chair back.
The eye releases       the light.
When the storm shakes the portico
this thigh that thigh   are the same.
(The storm
  is a bloodthirsty       thing.)
When the mouth, without effort, claims.
When the storm approaches
touching the light and not touching
the light are the same thing.
