lightning on this edge

of sky this is you and me

this long kiss goodbye


the moon swallowed by

the dragon maw of cloud you

closed your eyes and sank

no stars only the

bright moon through fast flying rags

of cloud and dark sky

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.
