She offers you
flecks of vision
jewels for your eyes.
She plants coils of

You want to capture a feeling
but you can only taste the movement.
Her hands cry like the sky
in your body.

She is a ruby flowering
in your sleep-walking bones.
Her full gypsy hips
are teaching you
but what you will learn
even She does not know.

A ruby longing
twists its roots into your being
until you are Her word
made flesh.

A word She has no control of
or cannot comprehend
until you give it back to Her
as Her life and your love.
