Let love be assumed.
It is not more nor less
For the bond between our molecules.
We met because we loved
And there is nothing to be gained,
Or lost in our parting.
And what crackles in our spaces
Is more than They crave:
Less than a ripple,
When you fuck the universe
And I know death at your hand
Let me cling to the earth a while longer,
Bring my centre of gravity down.
I’ll weigh soaring through oblivion
With sitting in this groove
And learn to love the dreams where I can fly;
Let me ground myself:
Feet to earth,
Dance back my power
‘Ere I disintegrate,
My gravity shattered into something new.
Watch me and be elevated
And we are the moment of conception,
The birth of stars stretched out through time:
Your touch the creation of atom,
My gravity to bring you home.
Defying Newton’s law
New and untainted.
And we try to destroy one another.
And come close.
But sweat-slicked and with kisses barely tremors
The slap of our fuck
And we are blended
Down to where our bones will rest
After we are consumed by the slow wave
Of our love.
The rules we set are ours
A pas de deux stretched out
For hours spent in breathless syncope
Weightless as a whispered kiss
Heavy as the voice that promises thunder
A living sculpture made in parity
Press in your thumbs and shape a soul
And leave your fingerprints behind there
Where your touch creates Pandora
Squeeze out my breath and steal it
Stop my blood
And in them bathe
In Infinity’s womb
My gift to you
Claim your power and weld it to my own.
Rend my seams
Restitch them in a pattern of our choosing
That I may be beautifully scarred
At your hand
And my seams run through yours
Shot with silver and gold
And all things precious.
Pull me apart with your rough strong hands
And I will gift you my
And I make you.
Spirit and strength
Thought and shape
Pollen and sting
Expressing algebraic divinity
Where you are god
And I am god
Because God is she
And God is he
Made brown earth and bright star
And there transmute
A-rolling me over into
Locked an interminable, nothing moment
Smashed into not-being then
A little mingled
A little mind-fucked
A little beauty palmed
A little peace embalmed
