Tides of Desire
Come splash with me, tango and spin inside
My liquid sequins and the salts I’ve cried.
Come swirl and sway into my dark unknown
Mind and body get tangled in the moan
Of every buried and sandy heart that
Hopes to turn its pain and ache, lying at
The bottom of their sea, to the milky-
Way of the crashing sky—a nymph’s silky
Sphere. The pearly mirror of untold truths.
Swallow it all, taste my sea-foamed vermouth
And let your laughter ripple upon my
Soul’s languid surface-an eternal lullaby.
