An Erotic Practice of Respecting the Body

Look—
This body all tongue,
all tentacle undulation,
all liquid
and resistance.

Listen—
This body all roots,
all fascial mycelium,
all space
and fullness.

Feel—
This body all pain,
all rhythmic blackhole,
all smoke
and mirrors.

Sense—
This body all time,
all spiral bloom,
all void
and change.

Know—
This body all ancestor,
all amphibious death,
all orgasm
and identity.

Look again.
Look with your spine.
Listen in the echo chamber of your gut.
Feel distraction,
Sense the overwhelm,
hot, pressured blood.
Know release is guaranteed.

Look again.
