Out Now // The New Honey Shade // Slender Threads Soon Disappearing

lost in almond stained sunlight
your radiance reflects throughout the cathedral of my retinas

we wash ourselves clean in the frost of the front yard
neither fully knowing when the change will come

you said you saw your reflection growing
the way fruit swells with sweetness till it’s falling

in this night nothing can be purified
as all await the songs of morning

birds fly through fissures opening in the sky
pouring star pale beams through pricked pinholes

your skin, an iridescent glove
undressing me from the inside out

slender threads soon disappearing

holding our breath
we grow dizzy off the lack of air

leaving the ground you hear me say

I will make a shape inside you
one you cannot deny
