Lady Familiar

Metaphors dance in my mind
and there's a word I'm hoping 
to find, a line familiar as
"I want you to be mine."
Relying on the fact that
poetry hasn't failed me yet
I hope you approve the way
God chose Moses's mouthpiece 
and includes all thou's, 
ye's, I's and me's
I want you to possess me
the way a forty-niner
would  gold.
Blaze a trail through
Oregon greenery and 
I'll follow you like
 Rockefeller wealth
and hereditary genomes 
wearing Nike shoes
till two becomes unified 
I promise to pursue you.

I pictured sunflowers and 
spilled rutabagas on grandma's 
corner peeled linoleum. 
She wore a halo and 
shooed away storms
Her hello sounded like hallelujah
and hummed Blessed Assurance
as her dentures soaked
in baking soda.

You're starting to remind me of 
the women of my youth
The qualities of a prayed up woman 
has been man's best protection 
The metaphor, word, and
 line familiar found:
 "He hasn't failed me yet,"
I can hear her saying.
I picture you praying.
