sweeping beg of cannibal beneath dress...

sweeping beg of cannibal beneath dress

I dared infinity's lover

to die of her beauty 
lying with Dawn 
in late morning rise

she was wearing 

May velvet pollen
maple's blossoms 
rain, bells, court tinder and flint

I squinted, found horizons 

say the sharpest cuts
are somewhat painless
though they all leave marks...

...that gather, ebb and eddy

dust and particulates 
even soap oils 
cannot keep at bay

so sweep I must 
trust in ritual and seize 
moments that come to me 
when so very hungry
