our boundaries are

north and south and east and west,

that’s all we can see


the why and the how,

the then this now,  north is south.

this compass broken

heat humidity

and i lick the sweat from your brow

humidity heat

i kiss you like the

thirsty woman kisses her

new bottle of gin

there is some pain in

this missing of you – a strong

ache deep in my bones

Your mark on my mouth:

Leaves my lips stained like fingers

Picking blackberries.

You burn this light all

along my nerves skin and bone.

Our conflagration.

Belly to belly

Our mute flesh finds tongue and voice

Calls us to this dawn.

Grain by grain he takes

The fragile crystalline shards

From her new filled bowl.

She painted her lips

A bright bright red and went out

To devour the world.
