~ bounce

I want to stay with you
the way a dragonfly clings
to reed in the sullen rain
and fingerlings settle
in fronds of the tide.

I want to seek you
as truffle and mandrake
and intoxicate
myself to grapple
and blacken the space
between finger and nail.

I want to be
the basilisk
and the komodo for you
to live in fire and reign.
