Subtle Offerings


Each gulp of sake,

inhalation of generous green,

melting my edge with your slow flame,



I am generous with myself,

I am dripping and numb,

insinuative into spaces:

glint of a wet lip.


Glittering distances.

The mirage of intoxicant.


I melts away

as it always does

before good.


Forgive the easy mouth,

unhinged python jaw.

I am so permissive,

giving all away like the whore Buddha.


Tense and quick particles bounced



against my melodic.


I like when I stop being body,

and does desire ever thing?

Or disappear?
