ever never dies

because i am a man &
you are a woman
there is nothing human that is
beyond us.

because i am a man &
you are a woman
the gods on their ivory
thrones grant us
wings.

because i am a man &
you are a woman
desire consumes the
universe; the smallest kiss is
an exploding star.

because i am a man &
you are a woman
the laws of time & space
stand aside as we devour our
bodies.

because i am a man &
you are a woman
we are seeds of
earth & children of
the sun.

because i am a man &
you are a woman
we soar in rhythmic harmony
as soulfully as
the billowing
cosmic sea.
