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
I could feel our paths diverging
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.
