, ,

Tempo slide, o’er wide

rocky palisades

falling by the flip of spades

hearts playing

hands on top of you.

Trembling o’er low

voice cascading

slow, sensual placating

body knows

it is suicide.

Tempo slide, o’er wide

skies of marmalade

clouds in hunger over rain

trespassing on

nightfall’s skin.

Tempestuous ride

cliffs abating

ache burns as light

your verse,

her body

casting me, o’er wide

rocky palisades
