Native Tongues

we talk in hushed voices

scurrying across campus

hurried mice hiding from cats

crumbs still coating our whiskers.


kisses shared in the night

full dark, no stars, full quiet, no riots

the only souls awake are us 


your hands are glimmers across my body

our limbs intertwine, hair everywhere

Your shoulder is in my mouth

we feast,  a pair of cannibal animals.


your eyes are ice, electric with passion.

Brown flecks splattered across the irises, stars in the sky

tonight our love tastes of the cosmos


I whisper to you,  magical tongues from days past

words that are at once familiar and foreign

we collapse, two puddles beneath the sheets.

you caress my face with the delicate hands of a gardener.


our pillow talk is quiet

still spoken in my slithered tongue

we sleep, dormant flowers under a dark sky.


We talk in loud voices

Walking patiently across campus.

You’re with your wife, and I am in hand with my partner

We are chameleons in this tropical forest.


(At night the pantomime begins again

we scurry, speaking in our native tongues

our love exploring places the eye does not see)
