Ink-skinned.

February 16, 2011

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