I have given you my mouth

and you have given me the night.

Wet, scent, petals and lips,
the gift of an open gate.

a small fire in the darkness
to lick the wounds clean

wrestling the beast of unrest.

queen of an ocean
i’m just an echo
in your breath

offering to the gods, running thread
in their starlightΒ hands

your spark between my lips
just one more moment to be hidden in dream

A river of tears,
thousands of mouths, wet and floating,
shining in the sun under Ra’s eyes,
golden and blue.

What makes you surrender love?
opening your solar tongue
to the rain of heaven.

Lifting your sweet
blue belly

to the hungry bees,
drunk on your breast.

her wings against my back
wading in a river of tears

waiting at her altar
granted the invitationΒ in
