i am gasoline


Published on Poems and Poetry 








reassemble
my
thought
with visions and goals
dreams and ideals
a sustainable life

something more
than this
current
societal
existence

rejuvenate
my
body
arms
splayed

outstretched
before you
your feast
my mouth
your escape
my holy altar
your salvation

regenerate
my
blood
so that it
brings me
sweet breath
open your mouth wide,
dear


allow it to flow
into your own
be a shining white beacon 
of hope
be all of this and more
for me, you, us

this most divine union
of souls
is meant
to change

everything 


let us rejoice
and bring them all
back home
to the land
the silt
the rich green grass
emerald
the climbing vines
and meadows
the cool deep streams
and the air we breathe


oh, so pure
the ether

let us bring it all
together
again

let us set fire to the sky
awaken oceans
raging, angry


let us call thunder
alerting the Earth
to shiver and quake
like my thighs
alabaster
like your deep rich eyes
boring down upon me now
like the volcanic rumbling
of every tired human voice


let us torch ourselves
this world must be reborn

i am gasoline
and you are my match

let us awaken the angels
so their choirs are heard
in all worlds
divine

like when we first met
a hazy rendition
of tidal waves
and dolphins dancing

ecstatic
