    Resting face upon holy ground grass,
    in heatwave summer shade beside the Queens' River
    waves made through that which i wade
    and bathe within her,
    as if frankincense holy anointing
    baptismal candidate
    the only appointed
    can't wait
    as outstretched hand, cups to receive her,
    receive her waters to bathe one like me.
    Bathe me, Simultaneously I drink she
    Like a dog lapping up every ounce
    whiskers wet,
    my drenched hairs won't waste any amount,
    of her
    Like religious fanatic fiend
    I give praises to the Queen.
    She baptized and made me an ordained minister
    in the art of the sensuous lover.
    Taking Missionary voyages with her
    (Cause that's how she likes it.)
    Settling fantastical emotional frantics
    with mind altering romantic dreams
    whispered as she makes love to me.
    The whisper begins:
    "What if we could take a trip into space
    in a ship decorated in Egyptian silk and lace?
    We could go beyond Earth's boundaries
    no longer bound by its gravity.
    Can you, could you just imagine you & me
    buck bald bare, without gravity
    burning candle wax floats upward to tender ebony skins
    touching two floating souls that are joined within
    joined within a moment,
    Siamese twins at the hip
    making love on walls and ceilings of gravity-fieldless ship
    The floater position
    would be redefined from this new experience
    floating dizzyingly in a sweaty erosive circumference"
    The whispers ends:
    My word is my sword removed from between her sheath
    as i soulfully speak, taking her grass from between my teeth
    "Don't leave me here in heaven
    crying in Jesus name a Climactic Amen-
    of I love you, don't ever leave me,
    be my wife and I'll be your husband.
    Queen drown me in your innocence
    love blinded me with your science"
    as we collapse within each others arms
    and listen to the silence
    listen to the silence
    listen to the silence

    What can I say that you don't already know as you confidently post this embodiment of perfection.

    Seamless,
