within you and without you

Atom Tan

wear your skin
to find myself safe
beneath my better half,
above the flesh and bone
born from a god-given rib

the atoms of my eve
as heavenly as my own
as we walk this earthly garden
hand in hand beneath the stars above,
bathed in their glow, ancient and white,
and home at last across our own pale skin

painting: 'starry night over the rhone' by van gogh
