On the new moon
I carved my name
Into a candle
And let it burn
Nestled in the hole
Of a bone
I need to remember
Who I am
While my heart blood
Flutters awake
Longing for a touch
For sex
For kisses
For eyes
That can see
I mustn’t forget
I am a world
A galaxy
A supernova
While that trickster
In my house
Tinkers around
Looking for ways
To morph
To become
That which is desirable
If I make a love spell
It will only be that
Which keeps this water fluid
This ocean
subject
Only to the moon
I was born under
I must be selfish
I must be first
No matter how
My heart wings
Beat inside my ribcage
For possibility
