QUEERY: Dream a Drowning by My Tongue

I turn your legs to waterfalls

curtains of water pounding slap

of a hand hard down on thighs

spread rocks beneath soaked sheets

your clasped finger heart beats together

dream my kitchen knife slicing

artichokes for dinner

I look at you a reflection puppy eyed

ink black pools shrink

in light lost when I look away

and found when I say your name

dream a house earthquake shaken

and wake to my voice hear

the certainty of seasons

I could make you believe anything

you say is true or doubt everything you know

I want to see you baby come over
