    1000 BODIES


    Every woman has 1000 bodies


    all encyclopaedic layerings


    a milky way of

    silent orbits &



    pumice stone lungs

    sedimentary thighs

    granite ribcages


    you refract light in a major key

    I'm still learning how to

    catch the tune


    I stumble through until

    full moon

    where you wait for me

    holding out a palm


    It's not that I'm

    a fiend for you

    I just feel like

    I'm still finding you


    Saturn sings her song

    we shake at your epicentre.


    -Luka Lesson
