. strong enough .. strong enough .
the flare of gold on ears nose and breasts
the lettered red strength of one
and black bloomed elegance of other
arms open where you might rest
hip to neck swarms hues of blue and gray
trace their flight in delight
this impatient heart's blood rush
are you ... as strong ... as I to stay?
