Sunflower and Rosemary
Like Sunflower and rosemary
God‘s great eyes opened upon you and gave you all her beauty.
Long hair like night sky
constellations on your skin
Shall we rush in? Shall we make no apologies?
Shall we dance till the morning? a slow waltz?
you are taller than I so I bask in your shadow
I shake though I hide it, you shake and you show it.
We are afraid of what the other might think.
So here I sit contemplating your beauty. We are so similar in mind
Sweet discourse and frozen thoughts. Sweeping it under the sheets like it is nothing.
You cast yourself down.
I will take it slow
I will drop hints.
I will dance around you
Put rosemary on the table
Do I not know you enough to make a decision? Do I not know at all?
Am I a fool?
For you are not made in that image
I am not made in that image.
I will cling to Eve’s hands and plead with her to reject the idea that she was at fault.
Perhaps they’re right?
perhaps friendship is a motion I have not yet experienced.
The sweet nothing between sentences.
From religion to science to everything in between, I create my own spirituality.
I wish I could speak in tongues.
I wish you were the only one that could understand me.
Sweet mother I pray to a god unseeing
My tears water the plants around my grave
Foxglove and lavender
Sage and rosemary
Sunflower round my face-
