Let me

with raindrops to the soil.

I long to dip




my slender tongue




into tulip mouths:
(lusty pollen collecting on my lips
sucking petals, pollinating

in the morning







I’ll pack my suitcase












with potting soil






place garden

















snakes











into housecoat pockets.


say I’m leaving you.
I’m taking root.



You’ll find me intertwined




with ivy in flower beds



hair tanged in




the monkey grass.
