It was you and your alien technology
That made me
All your chemicals and electricity


The Forest

We laughed in marvel at the dust between our toes
Heads thrown back in our hammock, dangling like pendulums
You said we wouldn’t fall
But I did fall
Into the sky reflected in your eyes, like twirling topaz
Glistening as we danced, danced, danced
Amidst electric trees
And I wanted to weave my fingers through
The spaces between your own
When we felt a celestial breath, like beating wings
That moment when The Forest pulsated
Within our flesh and bones.
