Mia Willis "valle dei templi (for juno)."
valle dei templi (for juno).
you stand so close,
i know that you can feel the blood pulsing itself
through the halls of my veins.
everything in me stands up to greet you.
opens my jawbridge of a mouth and spills out.
your eyes smoulder.
the grassland courtyard of my heart bursts into flame.
temper and lightning,
furor and wildfire.
on these nights,
i allow you to be the sage to my specters.
i learn how to love with smoke in my chest.
let it be known that on these nights,
you are holy sacrament.
all of my bricks and mortar
settle into the ground and somehow bend
to meet you.
let fly a blank canvas of surrender.
a smile trojan horses itself onto your lips.
my turrets tear themselves down to rubble
passion and earthquake.
attraction and tidal wave.
i have never wanted you more than I do now.
on my knees, corridors brimming with you
ready to die in your lap with my windows broken
and my hands in your hair.
one last time,
