Devolve

Boat journeys
angled in time through passage of gut,
winds through the story that knows
no end.

Shadow slinks
scratches its nails on uterine wall, graffiti –
squiggles codified to swear silence
forever.

Sky sits
on unbending line of horizon, time disperses
as cloudbursts – inky implosions behind eye lids,
shameful defilement.

It is this –
pain secreted in desire, moistness of want.
Muscle slackens, blood pounds with memory
of lust.
