By Feral

...howling, as ever...

The lunar tides within call out;
each tiny moon individuated
by a myth, red as self:

To be unveiled possibility admist such laughing scorn
is terrifying;
I must run from this vulnerability. My escape
will be a thing of extremes:

Whisper.drawn to the long exposure'd cream
of the surf
to be opened before
this yearning intensity.

Eye to I, my rushing current.

{This pleasure of being
abnegated by
invading possession}

Tonight, I dance with
the wholly Other:

in honor of the intimate exchange
of redemption,
in homage to the potency
of reciprocity.

who are you?

I have only held your teeth.

    This was great to read, one of my favourites. Is the internal ocean larger that the external?

    I still can't quite muster a proper response... that second stanza is just so so good... that will have to suffice. For now. ~b
