the lovers

the lovers

Let’s find each other
in the negative space
the curve of a hip
against hip
like snakes
writhing and contracting
waves on the sand
burrowing
skin seeking skin
like drawing out
poison
and pain
from the dark caves
violent and sweet
primal
teeth and tongue
supernovas colliding
draping strange angles
and limbs
a respite from the world
for a moment
