adagio



a walking promise, worked in suede and stone
and stormcloud eyes and forest-creature grace
that unmarked door I couldn't leave alone
those velvet hands to press me into place.

you set about the task of tuning me
as if it's very obvious indeed
to spin my knobs of curiosity 
and hover hands over my waiting keys

pulled taut under your salty sideways smile
the better to sing back your downpour beat
your wild moon river, wider than a mile
submerges every warning you repeat.

plucked wiggle-kneed and sharp staccato giddy
stroked as a sleeping wildcat, full of purr
then thumped to match the soundtrack of the city
and tendered to a wavering whisper

and there's my heart, retightening the strings
as my skin's ringing like a fresh-clapped bell
with every very honest unsaid thing
bass umbral under every sink and swell

i drip with sound and sigh beneath your bow
and fade with the crescendo of the sun
to start the waiting, even though I know
you'll smash me, smiling, when the show is done.

All of this is discussed because I find George's relationship with Rolex replica watches sale to be fascinating. While it might be easy to describe what Bamford Watch Department replica watches sale does as making toys for rather rich boys and girls, it is, in actuality, an interesting artistic exercise and replica watches sale effort of an artist who probably wouldn't be interested if his work came without a sense of struggle. Bamford watches are available around the world at a range of high-end department and "concept" stores such as Dover Street Market New York. George explained to me that his replica watches sale are not in most jewelry or watch stores despite frequent requests. People also actively reach out to swiss replica watches Bamford Watch Department directly to purchase watches. Social media has also replica watches become a major sales driver for Bamford.
