    gravity
    pulled you
    held you against my yearning
    stopped the hourglass grains
    even subterranean monsters
    of subway trains have
    lost their tongues and
    spilled stillness to
    fill basso profundo tunnel echoes

    your lips are the sky falling
    blooming on the brown ground
    of my yearning
    raining into earthquake mouth
    ground breaking
    to receive libation

    we speak in whispers of
    urgent tongue trains colliding
    and clocks fossilized
    and i am gravitational
    closing my eyes into smell of
    sweet electric memory
    tasting it all slow
    like honey creeping down
    fingertips starving for oral fixations

    it is sacrilege to pray to a woman
    pray for me
    because i'm running
    and hell's flames are licking
    the soles of my soul.

    Thank you, brotha.
    I give praise to the Creator for making radiant sistas
    to inspire our collective pen.
