When I Think of You

When I think of you
a bird alights in my chest,
his wings extending
wider than the sky.

A moment and then
his mighty wings flap
turning my ribs into dust
and annihilating my heart.

His mighty wings flap
and what remains of me
is a burning magnificence
in the censer of your love.
