Your Heart, big and round;
You make me think of drinking.
Your breast obscures the sweetest tomato,
and I want all the juice.
You are bright on my face,
red. I lick your spills.
Not even one drop falls to waste
on the dying earth.
Beat like a drum, little muscle.
Pump like a child's legs
driving momentum on a swing set.
Hunger colors me mad.
Thin ribs wrap the prize,
Cellophane, no- Silk, beyond.
The wind is warning you with its wailing.
This season of water will weave you away.
