a peachpit heart bulged
throbbed, from inside
i found you while cavorting in the minefield and
cast a spell,
made you real
with little labyrinthine circuitries, i swam them:
through vena cava and dorsal aorta
sounded exotic & i wondered what they ate
what a notion but i prefer spit!
you smiled then &
glancily licked your tiny quartzpebbled teeth
and for a moment
i forgot how to breathe.
