from Jewel-Tongued The stillness of a lover's mouth assaulted me. I never wearied of anecdote on the Commons, gesturing until I scattere myself into a luminance, shining over a cit of women. Was I less human or more? I hear stil my breathing echoing off their pillows. So man eyes like crushed flowers. Our fingers splaye over a bed's edge. We were blown away.
