31 PORTRAITS OF A WOMAN'S BODY

.

1

A firefly carves out her face

In the twilight in god's eyes.

2

Some nights

Heaven is just a turn

To the right side of lust.

3

A boy recreated creation

In a room too small

To room a minute old creature.

4

Under the stars

The earth becomes fluid enough

To fit in the shape of the moon

On a moaning tongue.

5

A woman's body would still be light

After carrying the weight of the universe.

6

Other ways to acknowledge art

With a defiled heart.

7

In a dark room

A body fell for the tricks of chemistry

& became a deflowered flower.

8

There's a place within your lungs

Longing for something other than air.

9

In the core part of the night

god walked barefooted on a fertile ground

& death couldn't erase his footprints.

10

God's way of staying magical.

11

In a woman's body

Is a generation; born & unborn,

& a nation; defiled & undefiled.

12

A holy ground

With more unholy worshippers.

13

A way back to the beginning of a story

Told about history & blood.

14

An entrance door

For boys finding their reflections

In the shadows of women like their mother

Waiting for a man to autograph love on their skins.

15

A woman's body is a staircase of wonders

The higher you climb, the closer heaven becomes.

16

There's no art, artful than the one

In your eyes at the sight of a rose

Breaking the night into fragments of stars.

17

A photo album

Of perfumed memories of a gone lover.

18

Some battles are best fought

In the thickest part of the night- under the stars.

19

Sometimes we have to feel

Love's heartbeat, we never can tell

When she'll stop breathing.

20

There's nothing here

Only a photograph of when

The universe stops running in a circle.

21

You're on the edge of the wind

Thrusting your soul with god's version

Of God's word.

22

The sea looks into the mirror

On the wall of sunrise

& admires her own beauty.

23

A woman's body is not so much of a saint

It drags every man away from himself

To the melodies on hell's tongue.

24

In pleasure

Our bodies diffuse into a whisper.

25

We attempt to blue-tify & mortalize our blueprints

By recreating ourselves- romantically

In a room braided with blues.

26

Intertwine your shadow with another

To feel God's heARTbeat

When he thought of man & said

It's not good for him to be alone.

27

You taste some things

And your tongue forever becomes thirsty.

28

The most sacred of places

Need no maps to reach their skies.

29

In wars like this

There are no bloodsheds

Only two bodies growing into a waterfall.

30

A boat rowing us home

Along the paths of our mothers

Their mothers & their mother's mothers.

31

A woman's body is an irresistible song

That sets your tongue on fire.
