With eyes like moss, not taking, just hanging
unrooted tangles of light translating
face blur over flower’s breath, breath of real breath
day takes my eyes to streets as leaves to roots
or truth to a little hurt feeling

Feel the boat crack and lift 
on the waves on your way across that green iris

Black dog in the sky coming closer to earth;
world of secrets i keep from the woman in my room.

A thousand miles from survival
I front opinion, I front the war
when she’s sighing and arched 
like lemon drips from my fingertips 
inside her perfect skin.
Anima and Animus sex suffocates in my swarming chest 

Black dog in the sky coming closer to earth;
the world of secrets I keep from the woman in my room.
Walking now in a dream, always losing the meaning
in a room with no heat did I know you or anything?

Breath of real breath
Black soil of earth
Black dog gets inside of her perfect skin
