You spoke to me in tongues

You spoke to me in tongues

My body ached to speak that way.

When you touched me my bones sang.

In the burnt ashes of the fire, I tasted a stone

and found it sweet.

I knew you were only my temporary

shaman

I could feel our paths diverging

swirling

you said you never slept so deeply before.

I scared you when I danced in the trees.

We bumped into each other and we stuck

for a while.
