Blue Pages 3.2 — Devika Mathur

. . .


Bones indigo,
lacking a piece of earth.
inside your mouth of stars.
My body, a tremor of zodiac signs.
Like a Taurus blooming.

You sprinkle lust
on my bosom
bubbles of thin colours,
a 4 am moonlight sigh.
Tender mouths of mud and water,
unborn fruits of the ultimate kiss.
This is us.

My hips now like a parched lake.
I am made up of unpruned divinity,
an untamed odourless shadow of sky
between the thick sheets of a dark city.

Beautiful sun, how you grow all over me,
with a swollen tongue licking my mouth,
as if collapsing in his arms.
Inside my mind, there is a temple.
I will crack my eyelids open., now.
