isotherm pinpoints our
mutual transudation

fondle its
leaf before
it down
quiet things
assumed broken
each of us
pocketing manna from their veins
jack on don’t jack off
what does that mean you ask
I show by example
quaking gender of
my splitting rib
you said you’re
urine was delicious
I didn’t believe you
but now I know
you were right
into mouth jam this
into ceiling light of
the tongue
paint me with
your semen
ovate face
ovate thoughts to
shape your attention
keeping time with
dying oceans we
snort opiates for
fitting a floor to
our step
