Crawl to Me
Have you been crawling to me, darling-
like a crocodile basking in the sun crawls
to the water?
Warm and ferocious
Have you been screaming my name under water?
Your moans are turning into bubbles in the ocean
I’m drowning underneath
I’m swallowing the surface
Have you been licking at my hips?
Have you been counting my bones?
I can’t quite hear you
Your words are dying in the caverns between your ribs
Flowers are turning into leaves
Humans are phasing into hyenas
We are nothing but breathing soil
