passing
piteous

night
now
night

hours
of horses

still
sweat
smothers
sleep

at
last
beast
believes

breath
interrupting
breath

consoled
by creatures

vital
fluid's virtue

been burning
from beginning

truth
told
in word
or less
than that

faithful to fluid

praise
open pores

only departing
appreciate

after

after
after

two bodies
from before

before before

two bodies
breaking over
one

another in
arms over breast
tongue
in her
her taking
tongue
turning
it into me

fingers
forming
icons all
over
her
body
bath

her
body
bath

that was

before

before

now
night
suffocates

swallowing
sweat

as all
i have

left
to loss's
loss

soak
skin
in blood

blood
brown
as feces

foretell
fluids

remaining
forests of flame
from where
i come

celestial
except i
read on contradiction
mao tse tung

so sweat
speaks significantly

shattered
entering sleep
drowned
& drowning

hearing heart
heat
hollows

me out

in wind
wheels on fire

cool

way she went
into me
slow surgeon
jer hands
melting memory
in drips
that
drop

from her eyes

from her eyes

she cleansed

calmly
she cleansed

until
we turned
eternally

over
over
& over
again

turning
in
out

barking between breath
we
didn't

want
watered
us

want
watered
us

licking
from feet
to form
just under
temple

& being

licked
longitudes
& latitudes

not one
space
missed

space
missed

we bent
against

air

before
before

tears
only fluid
teaching

now
in
nigh

suffocating

suffocating

becoming

gambler
whether i will

wake
be
woken

wake

wake

wake for me

 

breath interrupting breath
