    POEM OF THE MONTH:

     

    1000 BODIES

     

    Every woman has 1000 bodies

     

    all encyclopaedic layerings

     

    a milky way of

    silent orbits &

    galaxies

     

    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
