Mouth unstoppable yet heart so breakable if only we had might we would quiet down, quiet down. But words encumber us like birds who feel they must be heard among the growing crowd or surely they would drown out, they would drown out. Fervent feathers that burn our tethers and leave us stark and bare, we’re hardly there. I am one body nobody’s somebody, would you like to be one body too? We are lone bodies together some bodies when there is no body then there is you. Skin so braceable but much, too much we will encase it for the night while we quiet down, quiet down. For touch reveals in us a lust that’s covered now in rust, it’s starting to decay while we drown it out, drown it out. Ardent fingers, a kiss that lingers and leaves us stark and bare, we’re hardly there. I am one body, a lone body.
