NOTIONS

radiant
moon-shimmering
dreams
and the taste of you..
your eyes
like molten drops
of sunlight
burning gold....
and amber-shuddering
wonderment
in this displacement
of time
the occurrence
of whisp-like
sounds that
flow as
secret embers..
he liquefaction
of night
is the body
of my lover to me
and the singular movements
the soft notions
of light
that hover over
delicate flesh
that tremble
an apparition
of beauty in stolen
drops of time  ##

VOX

there appeared
in the form of smooth
supple lips
the end of the earth
and the deeps of salt-laden
oceans.. and mist.. the isle
of dream.. and the images
the godhead .. with his body
set with jewels
hair dropping black... wet trembling
with the taste of the sea
and with my thoughts..  

and my mouth.. the dislocation
of sound.. and syllables..
like shards of glass
swollen and bound
my fingers shattering
at the mere suggestion of touch
and the form of silence
and the emerald vision
of bodies.. and flesh
and hands... mere hands
i was intoxicated by each
ancient movement
a memory to me
a faint touch
that lingered on
delicate skin
and ripped hope
from the gold-coloured heat
the violet tinged scent
of my breasts  ##
