“vatican cameos”

By Annette Marie Hyder

night wraps his long arms around me
pulls me under his cloak of dreams
and lowers his lips to mine
sways me into a slow dance
that tilts me on my axis
as if i am an entire world in his arms
whispers that only with him can i see so far
into the vaults where all the stars in the sky
sparkle in their deep-space-wall-safe
the combination to which
he holds in his hands

Composition note: The titular reference is from BBC’s “Sherlock” , Series 2, Episode 1, “A Scandal in Belgravia”.
