Above the Horizon

In never-ending thirst
the desert dances on thorns of love
shadows upon shadows entwining
flesh over enfolding flesh

She lets him take her like the night
swallows the sun in the lunar tidal heartbeat
with his sky planted in her body
she howls like the moon melting into the sea
a lashing whip, a swirl of colors
on its fevered tip

Becalmed she brings him in
whispering his name
as he reads forgotten messages
on her veined wrists
