star fluid, moon milk


Unraveled lotus

in sheets of Saturn,

devouring children

like mother vermin.


Fearful quiver of

Mercury knees,

in leg-locked, lip-locked



Pendular moan

of Mars drums,

shaken earth in

clutched fists.


Forgive me,

Venus stripped of skirts.

Tongues cannot quench

wounds from Jupiter flames.


Unraveled lotus,

in sheets of Neptune,

devouring thy lover

like mother vermin.
