Of Body And Spirit

Allison Grayhurst

.

Of Body and Spirit

.

.

I seek your mouth

of sensual burning,

its sponge-soft pressure

merging perfectly with mine.

 

I seek its subtle textures,

its waxing and waning, the way

it condenses my being into

its single substance, into

a movement of focused bloom.

 

I seek your hair, your blessed smell,

your hip bone rocking like

the whole of the sea over uncharted sands.

 

I seek your voice sweeping the air

with its rich unconscious moan.

 

I seek the taking of your hand,

the tension of our bodies balanced

in mutual, animal awakening.
