he, the aether ~ {iii}

{iii}
i wear the perfumed nights;
blood orange
{&} evergreen
in the shadow ov my breasts,
molecules ov memoria
as bitter as they're sweet ~
... i write in the scents
ov your native soil,
accented curs{iv}e notes
caught on
the curve ov your tongue ...
you swallow my musing whole,
not savouring the discord
caused there
where the wind ate my words
*
my tongue lies
dead in your mouth, a sacrifice
to your wanton destruction,
the caviar'd curses
carved on my palate
my throat
between my thighs ...
... i am an ode
to slaughterhouse love songs,
peeled from myself
{&} devour'd in moments
when you are ravening
//

{ii}
we bathed in nightjar tears, flayed
hostia thin petals from our throats
& cast our eyes 30° across the lines that ley beneath our feet.
i fed you broken glass in uneven shards, knotted
fly-away curls in the indecent length ov your own
& buried my heart in an apple core.

{i}
i tasted the drum beat,
heard it in my soles
as they press'd naked
to the womb into which you
ploughed baptised hands.
the frayed cords licked my cheek
{3x3x7}
tethered to bone & feather,
dust kissed by your fervor.
