      name your price



burning my hands through your hair
so gentle a breeze my eyes go dryer

as cold as the moon that makes
wolves howl and poets cry
a table for two somewhere between
Dante’s Inferno and Palahniuk’s [orange] sky
shadows no longer attached to their deliverers
neither in debt to the morning lights

as long as your breath crystalizes my hopes,
other’s lies take the world by storm
then I endanger myself by stroking it
lightly with my trembling taintless fingertips
at some point it dulled my senses
to get your name stigmatized inside
lost and vulnerable so blind,
back of hands covering my eyes
face the fact to let me get it straight
now feel how your life lines fade away
