WRITER & VISUAL ARTIST

the sea is the promise:
choke on salty kisses,
crunch sand between hungry
teeth, clawed by want



my body loves his body:
and the black breathless bite
of the taking the intensity
the mystery hidden within
ten thousand suns


let me drown in this: let me
sleep next to this, his heated
skin flecked with sand,
this beach northsoutheastwest,
the edge of the world
encompassing this one

THE EDGE OF THE WORLD
