    truth n righteousness fam...its me first time here in a long time under a new misnomer. I hope you all enjoy this piece.




    Theology






    theology was the sun-like

    worship of your breath

    against the back of my

    heart…the feel of your

    voice prodding me

    along burnished time

    and eternity.

    You left me settled and

    Slightly detached from

    all that is wrong in the world.





    Marriage was me joining

    My heartbeat with the in-seam

    Of the rise and fall of your

    Exhaling…you were fresh…something

    That defied my inner demons…you

    Pushed and pulled the freudian slips

    From my speech and allowed me

    Room to just be…





    Death was brandishing my

    Life…my desires against

    Rocks…some proverbial Prometheus

    Chained for all time…you ate my liver

    With each waking morning and inserted

    Fresh batches of sonia sanchez'd

    Phrases and haikus between my

    Thighs…causing me, a man, to

    Give birth to poetic living…this

    Sapphic existence that began framing

    Our world.





    theology was me…submitting

    myself beneath the not-so-conservative

    authority of love…theology was me

    learning how to embrace your essence…how

    to love you.

    thank you for the love sista...the name Agabus is one of the New Testament Prophets of the bible and for some strange reason...his name appealed to me.
