In This Catching – C. Steven Blue

In This Catching


You look to me . . .


like somebody throwing up roses

a prescient and perceptive

human being


you look to me . . .


like someone who doesn’t do poses

a peachy-skinned presence

of fascination


I catch your

alluring demeanor

the glow of your wondering gaze


your fetching, yet spare

inclination to sing

It shines through my wallowing haze


I wonder what brings you

to center

to spring up and be

at this moment we’re in


I hope in this catching

you’ll let me slip up to

the magic that swallows your sin
