consummation

discovery begins in

 

flower petals; swollen

 

 

bruising themselves until they moan. Stained

 

sky like clouds of blood and succulent

 

 

terror. Poetry exercises

 

the in between but

 

 

space neglects to exist, skin

 

begets skin. contact

 

 

connection, harmony: we preach, disguising

 

only desire. Molecules bounce

 

 

like dragonflies of azure among matter.

 

Matters. The grapeskin of earlobes, muttered and breathing

 

 

distances forlorn and burst

 

with heartbeat. The edges of things

 

 

consume!
