City of Salt

man and woman
unfamiliar in time are
lost in the swells of harvest

eyes as steady as bulldozers

a body within a body
(is lighter than you think)

mouth cries are murky and
euphoric like smoke on glass

two bodies
living as a single body
are a sea in a city of salt

wrinkled and impermanent
(as angels and rose gardens)

he opens her body
like an accidental butterfly
red lips consecrate the sun
