lead me somewhere ive never been,
she murmured as his hands
found space
between her lungs & ribcage,
cupping the bird in her heart.
take me where i dont have to
feel anymore.

& so he did just that.
he spread her legs
like
a map,
sinking beneath the folds
tracing veins like roads
taking paths
like the miserable take wine
& she fell into each moan
the way we fall into poems;

one
line
at
a
time.

the bird fluttered
once more in her
chest
before it died.
