grind

pelvic palpation
with pulsating engorged extremities
of our southern-most reaches
sweating sweet sincerity
longing
for salty tears to be licked from lips
in laughter
and heated flush
with
hips the gears
of a great cosmic
machine
grinding
through night
and into the whitening light of a clouded
tangerine sunrise
we are
pushing the matter
a little deeper
forward with the momentum of yesterday’s abandon
embracing
the moment
with both hands
groping
for meaning in each others flesh
I blow my sultry winds
through the lock and dissolve it
but not our clasp
finding frisson with you within this carnal cage
as together we
escape
death
(momentarily)
through the glazed pupils of this sightless sight
un-seen
but
felt

grind
"groping/ for meaning in each others flesh" for me at least, the poem resides here, where many levels, spatial, temporal, physical, celestial coalesce. Another one to come back to, there’s more, waiting.
