An Erotic Education

The interplay 
and enmeshment 
of fear and arousal – 
a prerequisite
 
The magic 
of transmuting peaks of arousal 
into plateaus 
of contentment/bliss, 
into that which reverberates, 
echoes, 
melts 
into the intimacy of space
(spirit)
by flowing 
between every crevice 
of the landscape
(body)
 
The magic
of a contained reciprocity,
a deep holding 
by the shadow 
in the valley
 
This 
is learning by dying, 
what you have come for
 
This 
is an initiation
