This still-born life

Untitled 91-98, watercolor on paper

This still—born life
dream compote flecked
with occasional pits +
genes of despair
your intaglio image etched
too deep to bleach
taste of amaranthine
mourning at
heart’s trap-door
suck in the desert
breathe out water
spit magma
melt into cypher
