Michelle Williams-


copulated
 
the night bleeds slowly
but i am tumbling erotic

plunging breathless

beneath the silken thrusts of your benediction

an exhale away
a gasp in predication

and your refrain

elusive

a carnal indifference
nebulous as rain


tattoo
 
i’d wear your perhaps
like a tattoo
eternal

if there was but     one
reason
beyond the rational
to



grains
 
we peer through glass  
                darkly
stained with windows
as if the denying the master
had not already enslaved

as if time were not the marrow
framing these bones

as if it were only passing    grains
counting lullabies

like Buddha in repose
