Is it true there is no skin there no bodies
of planets circling no galaxies
inseminating themselves like annelids.
Is it true blue could not touch blue & shoots
of green would not spring from a touch of yellow.
I heard a song if nobody ever said my name
my name would not exist would be the emblem
of nothingness my eyelashes not collecting
the rain. If you knew me for the first time
what would you call yourself? If all you knew was
sounds more sounds as if we met
there without skin only the parody of
purity. Kiss me as if love was the easiest thing
to do kiss me as if heads of state
were not falling elsewhere kiss me as if
trees had never been used to bear a noose.
