With immesne thanks to Thomas DeFreitas for helping me fix the rhythm of this blank sonnet.
Iíll Sally Out to You Tonight
Tonight I'll sally out to you, my love—
A casual stroll, a lazy amble—
Then I’ll pick up the pace: walk faster, farther,
Humming an old familiar melody,
Recalling moments blurred by passing time.
Desire will burn my limbs with avid flame,
My mind helpless against a welter of lust;
Keeping the pace and tune, thinking of bodies
Caught in a whirlpool of swirling sensations,
For a time, I'll be younger once again.
I'll stop in front of a lonely neon light,
Whisper dark secrets into its rusting ears;
Carrying just a spark in my tender flesh—
I'll bring my body, my soul to you tonight.
