Heart states

Blood-full, swollen 
Ripe with hunger 
of all varieties 
Fevered, sweltering 
A sweaty temple 

Rusted, cobwebbed 
Unswept and unwashed 
Distant, Left swinging 
In the wind, far from notice 

Heat lightning! Strike the ground!
Boil, tumble, the shape of your mouth!
Fire, fire,  red fire! Melting to the bone..
Oh, oh, oh! Before, during, after!
All the time! More, more, more butterflies
More everything, more throbbing, heaving! 

Oh god, can't stop laughing! 


.. 

Failed, glass-blown thing
Knocked off the edge of a ship
Filling with silt, cement and bile 
Smothered, frozen veins, 
locked into place, eyes closed 
Too tired, too heavy
To utter another word 

Peeking through a keyhole 
Moving around in the chrysalis 
Thinking, only a little, about 
Reaching out, or in, or in between
Sleepy but curious, again 
Flesh is building up, maybe it's time
to come down stairs for breakfast
