Rhinovirus by S.C. Stuckey

Under the microscope
they watch me dance
arms outstretched

misinterpretating
the beauty in simplicity

In our lover’s ballet
I long to touch you,
become a part of you

reciprocally we grow
transforming each other

They watch me, analyze me
study what they do not grasp
but we both know

try as they might to impede us
we will be together again.
