There’s sea inside her
As she’s inside the sea.
And indeed that’s how she came
In wave after wave after wave after wave.
I dissolved like sugar in tea.
There’s fire inside her
And she’s inside the flames.
They flicker just behind her eyes
She rises and lights up the sky,
And all my inner beasts are tamed.
The wind’s inside her
And in the breeze she lingers.
Around the hills as different weathers
Light as air and wild as heather
Her hair a mosaic of salt and my fingers.
There’s earth inside her
And she’s inside the land.
Lava pulses through her veins
Rocks and pebbles her domain,
The world spins softly in her hands.
And I’m inside her
And she’s inside of me.
It grows and grows and grows this thing
Just how long is a piece of string?
And how close this to symmetry?
Busted Flat is free just now. Mostly it's of the faded variety.
