Blood defrosts my icebox lips
You must login to vote
As I draw them together to kiss the stars
That exhale ancient breath down
On this ruined Eden.
Dead stars hollow out,
They form vacuums from the lifeless,
Like frigid drafts
In the breathless Catacombs.
The Earthís satellite pulls me gently by
Vital fluids swelling in my skin.
The Moon forms tides in my veins,
An undertow in my cheap plasma,
And geranium waves
Of my red and white blood cells.
It shifts the corals of my spine
Until a fault line breaks down
The center of me.
Life is rocking back and forth,
Death is shipwrecked on every shore.
Mozartís Requiem explores my ruined daze,
Composed in magic-coated insect melodies;
River nymphs and the lullabies they sing,
Ancestral sisters and everything,
A ghost drowning in the sea.
I swim naked and reborn into the Ocean that holds
A lunar reflection;
I float like a corpse
In the spitting image of a monumental moon.
My body full of water
Dissolves into a body of water that echoís
The nightís Celestial Body,
Only causing a ripple in the moonís mirror.
