Sanctuary


Of course, your songs in their bright red melodious coats I jump into the pocket where your right hand goes, play with your fingers like they're my own private army of clutches.

I do not know which doctor it was, but it must have been one, who plucked out both my eyes and sewed them to your tongue so all I could see when you opened your mouth was daylight

moving across your lips.  This same surgeon, I believe, must have been made of miracles for he managed to clip my ears to the insides of your cheeks like two pink wings.

A few tender beats in the wind of your breath and I could, if I wanted, unleash the bird in your throat.
