your touch unsettles how I see, 2013
Forbidden My Lips, 2013
I take you in my mouth.
Devour you whole.
Roll my tongue around you.
Taste your salty sweetness, the
expansiveness of oceans, a
millennia’s distilled tears.
With each inhalation, I take you in deeper.
Exhaling—I breathe your transformation.
Expanding, inflamed, you
stretch beyond your own boundaries,
shattering what is known. Solid. The
mere touch of my flesh, a whisper—a flame to parchment,
eviscerates codified myth.
Your lips call me to rapture, to
Worship. Promising ecstasy, a
dissolution of self.
Enfolded in melodic undulations, you
beckon me near.
My longing for union, a
melting into the other, a
sweetness in scalding liquid.
Your lips a gateway.
