you remembered drinking him as a malt condensed with milk that night because you wanted to know what it feels like to write a form into your womb with translucent strokes. you watched him as he poured himself into you to prove that humans are water bodies; the fluid swam through you & metamorphosed to a sunflower brooding brilliantly in your belly. it made you believe that you're a homely cask. this night, you watch in awe as the chandelier glowing around the sunflower in your belly resonates with candlesticks & it is pretty & cool & sweet to be this vase carrying a flower that is of god & of man.
