after the borrowing

the fracturing, rain

returns the ocean

to itself

this drawing in

surrenders distinction

between sea and sky, blurs

their bold titles

with one rich smear



your skin, a scent

like belonging

the rhythm of you breathes

to me all night

in this same humidity

the oceans of our selves condense

and with each body’s slow

sweat we bleed

our beginnings.

This Same Humidity Image
