I have tasted the gods, they stain my tongue like red wine
Safe, deep in the forest you lay to rest
The dew soaked moss and twigs, scattered like fingerbones,
your spine torn out, bleached white and curved like a bow.
I searched but fail, couldn’t find your heart, trembling
against the opened cage of your ribs,
Stake your claim on mine, just as well as I can stake claim on the sky.
Hidden somewhere, your heart pumps
A deep sigh of relief. I come undone. Unraveled.
and with my new found nothing, I am free.
