Like a nomad trespassing border’s edge, I rip moonlight’s seeds apart ; drain the pulp of my creamed bosoms, shapeless— meandering along tracks of notes and interludes so orange, strangely orange in near Autumn's fuming light. And as the hollow of a world dilutes unfinished refrains through dances untamed, my lips turn midnight into a wayward trance. I was so close to the language of myself, this navel unbuttoned and numb by aimless wanderings still, still... I took absence of me. Somehow, the husk of November slowly unwraps my flesh incandescent, as if to burn the oil, incense—maybe sandalwood—just to give a name to lapses of unravelled trails. The delicacy of soil nourishes my thighs, anchored once more unto the swell of awakening. I stayed away a tad long in some vacant space without food for womb only transients like me could bear…a lull perhaps that compels a mouth to feed on the nectar of life’s ‘now’, ploughing my arms back to seeds’ core where my inner place resides.

    I find this about two notches above my vocabulary level, yet your emotion is vividly present. I feel the intent of this verse and am satisfied at the conclusion. Being at piece with myself is evidence enough to convince me that you delivered on the responsibility of a writer to reach their readers... ..... Love ya dearly...Jake
