MY RED FIRES

RED  PART l

Red
blood streaming between my thighs
red
the deep slow pulse of desire beating in my veins
red
the dark red earth hot under my feverish dancing feet
red
the ark of the infinite burning sky I embrace flowing into me and out beyond
red
the brand of our hearts seared into each other's inner skin
red
symphony of inflamed vulva flesh hot and tight
red
placenta nourishing you born of me
red
the scream raw in my throat that must come
  cannot be stopped
     is hurled out of the red core-
               Birth, grief, love
                         Red
