Sneak Peek at gin & adrenaline

lixiviate

this water is penetrating my skin

i watch as my flesh

bloats & distends

as the roses

on my shoulder stretch

& thorns dull

this water is penetrating my skin

the handle won’t go

up any hotter

i want to feel it

burn watch it melt

my epidermis

through the meat

to the bone

this water is penetrating my skin

to wash away

your fingerprint

caresses their imprint 

on my back where

you held me against

you tight

tighter

we breathed

synchronicity

this water is not penetrating my skin

rinsing away how your voice

sounds when we’re at the bar & 

you lean in

lower your voice

whisper into my ear this is how

my NPR voice sounds

& talk radio has never

made my body erupt

in need the way your breath

does on my skin it’s ions

can’t cleanse me 

of the sins i lie awake

at night & imagine violating

your holy ground choking

on sacrament & saliva

a confessional of kisses

& fingertips caressing

my skin this water is not

penetrating my skin the way i ache

for you to be

come a part of me to be

a shoreline & you

a wave wash over

me wash me

away

this water is not my sin

– let me take you back to how it all began
