you are the
only deadly
thing above
(me killing)
me.

pressing me
to juiced pressings of
i/you, body
to
body

impressing we
the tall grass.

one, then two sets
of footprints heading to,
but only
one body shaped-impression
of(you in)me.

(the t)all grass tells
the b(l)ind sun of my arching
back, the lying
leaves of your arms around me.

we ask the bees and
the birds about the
birds-and-the-
bees and(t)each the world
how to populate,
so (l)earning how to die.
