An Instrumental


There was honey on the thigh of her bow
crying in time with his piano steps,
dripping down her hand
into sticky dilated pools
of heavy hymn.

Melting bedroom walls
sucked seconds
off the face of time
like absinthe

Heated heaving breast breaths banged like
heads
on
glass-
the crescendo of notes
digging into the backbone,
and evaporating into
ecstatic echoes of remembrance.
