Femme Couverte

The instance in which
I’d be
a femme couverte is never
lying encompassed and entangled
with you
My existence is not denied me
but shared
admired and gratified as I yours and
Your weight upon mine
is not one of chains and bars
but liberation
Hand upon my hip
does not hinder
mouth over mine does not silence
femme couverte I will never
Two does not become one
but two
becoming more than two- more than myself alone
less neither in number nor quality
Growing, not dwindling, and never less than
Cover me then
cover me
but femme couverte I will not
