Lover, I Must Whisper This

Lover, I Must Whisper This

We just are

Delicious seclusion of skin cave
Sonnet’ise purity of couplet tongues
: as mizzle seducing lonely walker :
Private mantra directs our breath
On voyage to that other country,
Where bed is the only sanctity.

Taught my tongue to say I do not know
Embracing language in the spaces between (f)light,
Climbing hinges of doors with no mouths
In the convent of least resistance.

Let’s go and kill a poem
For the flowers in the vase are black now
All the corpses have risen and left.

Darling, I must whisper this

The night breaks in my voice
Ghosts bite their initials into my neck.

The stars we are

Watching the world spinning
Silhouettes of paths across
Water to the dark hills.
