Lampyridae with Luminous Spots

Lampyridae with Luminous Spots

On the bed again,
In the soft-hued moonlight,
Sebastian is stretched out three blocks long,
Dreaming of the chase,
As Mr. Pants slips seal-like under the covers along my side,
Warm fur,
Kneading claws,
I start to teeter and drift off,
Flop drop,
Toward sleep
And then you are there,
Flashing shutter frame translucent,
Until you solidify into warm skin and cool breath,
Eyes smiling,
With familiar nonverbal truths of us,
A kiss,
A sigh, and
As my eyelids blink,
Our luciferin becomes oxyluciferin,
Our organs luminesce,
Loving little fireflies,
Flashing brilliantly,
Becoming whole again
