Waking is tasting

and choosing is prayer—

salt sea thyme leaves

gorgeous, fig laden, genital tree

musa sapientum just beyond my reach

wiser to remain
with resin in the veins

the heart’s residence birds & evidence of birds

musk in the hidden recesses

the skin’s myriad melodies

the wordlessness of words

Adam: caution turned flesh

Angel: a fountain of water issuing from the earth

God: the body turned inside out

organs exposed to fill and receive


One thought on “Eve
