RABBIT

I cross this desert snow, leaving

prints of puddled light; my passing

only a whisper

 

                                                                       soft

as between lovers.

A ring of trees stand,

 

                                                                       naked

in supplication to a moon, pregnant

swollen with night.

 

As if conjured, you appear from a place

of howling need;

 

                                                                       Did I invent you?

Memorized, your form; perfection

perched, soul parched, like water

 

                                                                       I drink you.

The pulse-beat at your throat, its

vibration confounds my senses.

 

                                                                       Separated

by more than distance, by essence, by

meaning;

 

                                                                       I feel you.

 

You are my predator, I your prey,

                                                                       your meat.

Time blinks, a pause, a spread of

wings, the raptor ascends.

 

                                                                       Sanity misplaced.

A symphony of pain, a crushing of bone,

tearing of sinew;

 

                                                                       exquisite agony,

 

savage ache.

Blood kisses the ground,

 

                                                                       a virgin flower

blossoms red against a sheet of white

Flesh into flesh, eternities end

 

                                                                       At last

as one.
