Lakmé, An Act in Four Parts

 

 

 

You are beautiful like melted wax

a cream colored fluorescent

that spills desire over my skin

 

You tasted of jasmine

tear dropped rosebuds

 

I’d catch you by the tip of my tongue

 

Lick drops of honeydew

off of your skin

you are an elixir on my tongue

 

You are a form

higher than those deities

 

But I, unlike that moon

 

I wouldn’t dare to speak

their names around you
