Circles into you

I love you sideways,

In spasms of insane rapture

Across the screen, into the mind

From the heels, through the veins.

This night life of trees grows into us,

From prickled leafy joints to silver limbs,

And I call you by foreign names

In the most native tongue of my mother

And whisper them, wordlessly, into your veins.

Indeed, I love you sideways,

On oblique arms and sloping thighs

Into the uneven angles my heart bursts.

  1. Louis Kasatkin

    An aesthetically pleasing work that catches the unprepared reader out ,like a storm warning in the tropics.A deep and satisfying draught of poetry leading to intoxication.
