Words woven
from their shackles
in imagination
and desire,
gain flesh
etched in ink
on the pale page
of your skin;
my mind slides down
sensing the ebb
and flow
of your heart’s
steady beat
tasting the saltiness
of thirst
hearing the
feeling the sun
on my back
my eyes
below yours
I tumble
to be caught
by you.
