there is one who touches me so it burns my hands open at their feeling of the length of me looking into my face or down my body holding the place of liquid fire waiting there or questioning what it is when another’s touch burns me open as I burn down - my arms loosening whoever I am sheared away Ignited again by those hands hands that force me to question how far desire takes the body before mindfulness leaves it.
