You are the rule
And I was made to break
Told not to trust the pulse
Between my legs
But I crave all
Your bloom and decay
You are the empire
And collapse
Of biblical ways
Conquer me
Crossing, penetrating
You are the invade.


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.
