Twine // Ron Jordan



your body


brown and bold as my favorite liquor


and just as intoxicating


in my arms, pliable as warm wax


melting through fingertips


touch molded into black skin


taste flowing across teeth and tongue


lips whispering pious devotion


singing sin

gently


your praise, a psalm

etched into eyelids


every consonant, a prayer

each vowel, a blessing


legs still twined

behind my head.
