“Attached,” I tell them,
And I have fallen,
Like the Great King, I have fallen
And I cannot bear this heat
Like the great Egypt sun,
Like the equator summer.
I will fall down to this God-like force-
To the be all and end all:
I will fall.
And I will tremble!
As fingertips trace eternity into my skin,
And your lips kiss me into drunken oblivion.
I will surrender to thee!
And plunder down deep into the sea;
Deeper than the Pacific, higher than the sky;
My breaths change like the seasons.
My breaths change to you.
So shall it be:
I am your slave, your prisoner,
Your guardian, your fool.
“I am attached!” To you
Attached like a moon
In orbit, I orbit around you;
My star, my sweetheart.
Oh, how I do love
Your bittersweet poison that kills
So slowly; I have met my demise.
