Where is it?

We make love under the covers
as lovers do
make love
under
the covers
where is it
the love?
Is it in the kiss
like Klimt’s kiss
or like one of a Eskimo
on the nose
or a butterfly
on eyelashes
or one like in France?
Is it there along the guide
of the spine
the eyes do shine
on the chin propped up
on two bare hands
is making love the sex
yes
or no, perhaps
that is one text
of a string
of dialogue
enough to thread together
a textbook
of love
a dialogue like that of plato
meant more for understanding
than any kind of destination
perhaps
perhaps there is no destination
just the pleasant company of another
close
right by
