Ensalivé

Find credence

reading bloodstones

for contradictions immutable.

 

Crash and condom insolute,

fingers at my neck

teetering & inscrutable.

 

Magic & fire locking horns,

paint this body

the tireless color of salmon

 

diving pink into the Red. 

Spawning eggs

on banks of gravel,

 

scandalously high!

as a mountain of death –

Love is weather,

 

love is the sea

tide in, tide out

chasing currents

 

for odds, insurgent?

Restive as the sky. 

Riven to a cross –

 

it leaps, it stalks!

Born at sea,

both horn & fly.

 

Coils & zigs

along a whispering edge,

a flat out rush –

 

between the loathsome

& the sly
