Slow Promise

Slow Promise

Our bodies open
into each other

like hive & apiarist,
high up in the hollow

tree of our soft-drone
desire, lucent

in our sliding silk,
slowly lifting

each frame heavy
with promise of tongue-

burst, love’s insane
sugar of release.

[from my chapbook Collidoscope forthcoming at Mark Time Books, Castlemaine, Victoria, Australia]
