    4:23 in the A.M.

    "ante meridian" ?
    "amplified modulation" ?

    (no)

    "After Moan"

    (YES)

    listening to the morning song
    of early birds and blinds being
    violated by a hushed wind

    quiet yet blowing
    +++++++++++++gently

    the clouds ambulate / stroll
    into a new day forming letters
    spelling out last night across nature's roof

    It spelled everything correctly / telling me
    that we weren't alone last night / but watched /
    we agreed that we would never speak,
    mere words would only discount the moment
    shared but...

    (I'll talk anyway)

    you hung Chiffon from the ceiling / candles
    were held by bronze holders illuminating
    the eve / boiling cinnamon sticks and apples
    that scented the room....Me'Chell Nde'geOcello's
    voice rose and descended in the background

    We, naked in our co-existence, lay silently
    letting heartbeats conversate in a tongue we
    understood but they could articulate / our
    fingers lay anxious - waiting - for the closing
    remarks to be made

    - waiting -

    2 explore each other as if we just met /
    "these moments" always seem like first times
    (LOVE kept new is LOVE always, without wander)

    touching you and watching your thoughts
    projecting themselves on the darkness was like
    being in a delivery room watching the constellation
    be born / each child opening/closing their eyes
    kissing our bodies with flickering light strobed us
    into slow motion

    you said you...liked it that way
    deliberate, unhurried
    so I moved at 5.5 "spm"
    "strokes per minute"
    giving you time to learn a new
    language to moan my name
    Swahili, Amharic, Spanish, Arabic
    or etch it in Heiroglyphs on my back

    you created your own lexicon,
    your own dialect, your own inflection
    you said my name like no other and you
    moaned a mixture of earth tones donning
    us in August hues

    We layed there watching as your last moan
    took flight beyond the realms of our reality
    to get to a dream that needed sound

    let me let YOU speak to what I'm feelin about this "peace"....its succulence has me in the juicy grip of the drip pouring thickly through my mental:

    because

    "these moments" always seem like first times
    (LOVE kept new is LOVE always, without wander) "

    subsequently:

    "...your thoughts
    project themselves on the darkness was like
    being in a delivery room watching the constellation
    be born / each child opening/closing their eyes
    kissing our bodies with flickering light strobed us
    into slow motion"

    no doubt:

    "you said you...liked it that way
    deliberate, unhurried
    so I moved at 5.5 "spm"
    "strokes per minute"
    giving you time to learn a new
    language to moan my name
    Swahili, Amharic, Spanish, Arabic
    or etch it in Heiroglyphs on my back"

    and so:

    "...We layed there watching as your last moan
    took flight beyond the realms of our reality
    to get to a dream that needed sound"


    (mouthing the words, "THANK YOU")

    Alyce, your "thank you" at the end, is much greater than anything I can write. With that said I stand in appreciation.

    one love,blak

    Hmmmm.....just wondering if this is...?

    If not, I still enjoyed it thoroughly!!!;)
    Especially this here:


    "you said you...liked it that way
    deliberate, unhurried
    so I moved at 5.5 "spm"
    "strokes per minute"
    giving you time to learn a new
    language to moan my name
    Swahili, Amharic, Spanish, Arabic
    or etch it in Heiroglyphs on my back"
