For when you opened your cheeks

I was left dull breathing
In the windswept tongue, new
The fire of mornings halo, dashed
And we were as yet unformed

For when you opened your cheeks
Straw dogs and termites climbed out
Seething with hollow grandfather clause
And restless declensions about the day

We were as yet unformed
Claiming car doors in between light
The raw momentum of go and pause
Hurled toward nubile destination

But I knew better than to rescind
The fiery crater at my heart's end
So I blasted with trumpets the laser
Clearing cancer from mind fields 

Still a sigh as yet unclaimed
And we were unformed in tribal bells
Taut, with riding around the taurus wheel
As streaking clowns plunged for noon
