Conflation

by semantic sapphire

Is it really the moon

or is it the way it

shakes off its dust

shimmy shimmy

swish sway sprinkle

glimmer twinkle

in our eyes




could it be

that in her you see me

sway glimmer glimmer

sashay glitter glitter

watch me set

like the sun

as I walk away




or are you the river

that pretends to be rain

splish splash

simmer simmer

are you falling

are we flowing

I cling to a drop

carry me away




shake it off

dusty dance

our mantras sound like moans

simmer down

shimmy on

we best let love alone

we best let love alone

we best let love alone




I glimmer for the sparkle

you shimmer for the shine

we shake it 'til we break it

our tears run red like wine




swish

sway

sparkle

glimmer




love

leaves

me

bitter




herbs

root

candy

truth

tart and tucked inside of you




it could be

that in her you see me

sway glimmer glimmer

sashay glitter glitter

watch me set

like the sun



as I walk away...
