I cup my ear on her skin, eavesdropping on
Her dallying soul; the chiaroscuro profile;
Its shape mirrors the brown Japan on her clavicle
She lines her eyes charcoal; blackened pits
Swallow me whole in her rhizome labyrinths
Fall into her brown Japan as she falls into me.
Together, we awaken into the narcotic night.
The promise of a carnal symphony plays as
Leaving imprints of her mercurial lips; bruised.
She pulls me through all my synapses; tender
I, hungry, dig into the filigree of her epidermis
Even while knowing the same sides of a magnet
