Irradiated Love


How I enjoy seeing you in your 
paper shoes and hat and lilac scrubs,
Do with me what you will, Aurelia –
Light me up the way you do,
I want to shimmer and scramble your screen.
I love the merry expression I see in your eyes,
the jokes we make about bacon frying
as you strap me in the position,
then disappear behind the lead-lined door.
