The Assumption the earth leaves like the leaves do dress of the fall how severe the knot it is bulbing all over me exhales my skin every pore of my body where it whistles whittles honed stone and cold how my young is isis discharged from the military for the more i am pressed the more i devour she watches over women who give birth she leaves me with her laying of hands to precipitate the dove how ruah carves my body sings into the elbows of roots this maya mara magnetite of eyes and mouths kleshas his promises dishevelled his hair slicked back mosquitoes hot on his body standing water unwatered rain he coughs as i swallow transience like a black victorian coffin a ceremony in play weeping womb my embryo could die sunrays heavy fanning my head like a native with long hair the knitting of twigs and mud weaving of body like sackcloth and bud i am a crow she the crown atoms of my thoughts my dysphoria hangs off me like my wraith when i lie how her nurture is my life done i wonder now for myself this diaphanous bulb my fulguration the dance of ancient instincts a potion or fragrance curling the sea how i red my fingertips to disengage the black burn blackbird will i still understand you hard disk of infancy biscuit sun
