Light breaks the moment tingles tickling
as thin flesh registers
ancient photons knocking lightly with birdsong
behind thin ruddy fabrics,
this seemingly habitual routine
of shuttering the mind with the moon’s rise
to burn foggy veils at the bonfire’s of dawn
cones and rods are automatically adjusting
please stand by…dilation is now complete.
Quickening spirit to rise once more welcoming
an uninvited reality with congenial murmurers,
belly warmed spoons,
spines stretching like cats on hot dusty pavements,
a moment of luxury
freedom being time sensitive,
waits for none.
Here in this warm soft haven,
churning what it is, into what it will be
buttery flavored daily habits,
on-the-job-training in soul management.
Cleave to me, my toast-warm lover,
one more salty embrace before
obligation consumes another 1,440 minutes
on life’s unknowable continuum.
Sing into my mouth your legends,
I echo a cavalry of harps.
under the grindstone, merciless
lips stained with ambition,
engorged on wanton saffrons,
throats and teeth bared,
offering ourselves to the universe
chins dripping wet from greed-needy hearts
unapologetic we face this day
warrior class stewards
pitchforks at the ready,
challenging who we are
by turning under everything
we think we know,
setting the fields afire
in our wake.
