on an infinite tile, or till it all passes — Chapter II
Chapter I: https://gensociety.com/2023/05/12/hom-nguyen-moondancers-love/ Inspired by an original manuscript from: https://www.instagram.com/poetic.wolf__/ i have yet to know the sound of her voice her scent as we lie in bed together as we let the world spin around us one arm over her belly the other under her neck folded over her breast i can't stop thinking about her in my arms pressed against me all the ways in which we tangle two spools to a black cat stretching the universe as she looks at me for the first time in her life i sing for her from shades of a virulent past our dangling broken ornaments that tug but that is now beside us for the past does not exist i howl for her for you! for everything we've wished so long as it's love but beyond this beyond our moondanced melody this here is my discourse in our native language these paper words are for you and you alone words you can put ink to and howl with at the world behind the poetess wolf you hide shooting them at your vacant lovers to show them what real love is and through the mask of what we know each to be we are cautious because we also know the ways love can kill... we need to reclaim ours calm the waters stop gallivanting at the sight of another broken promise for there is no greater pain in the universe than that of a blood moon bleeding back to gray but not us the world has re-collected our stars oh no death will not become us for here you have my heart and here between the most desolate of surfaces we see an alien planet where we both enter the waters nude submerged dripping scribbled in love like children floating the amniotic sea we hold it as it holds us back in our one remaining promise with one everlasting wish for our one final lover by LORIN DREXLER
