SKETCHES OF A GENERATION
Leap 

The child has left
half an orange in the bed
the segments are crushed under my knee
inside you a red light burns
I cup my hands around your calves
come into the velvet of oblivion
fall asleep and dream of a bed
built of veined and fragrant wood
but dark, carbonised like a forbidden photograph
I wake up
hear the conversation of our breathing;
you say you make me
I say I make you
we agree we make each other
we jesters
when mankind’s greedy leap
over death mounts us both
makes us
