Feathers And Flame

Your heat is immense,
forging my metal
from sword
to eagle.
I take to the sky
gorge myself
on your inferno,
swallow you whole.

Your flames
engulf
my horizon,
ablaze
my wings,
lick
the sun.

I pirouette
on your tongues,
flickering
you protrude, extend, reach,
meet me
in the heavens.

Your oath to heat
my freedom in flight
fuse into a planet,
a union
of feathers and flame.

I’ll Be Anything You Want

I’ll be anything you want, my love,
a grain of sand, a panoramic view,
the thirteenth bar in a twelve bar blues,
I’ll be your Mills and Boon, I’ll be your mews,
If only you will love me.

I’ll be anything you want, my love,
a fortune teller, your yoga teacher,
your secret agent in Argentina,
a roadie, a mystic, your opera singer,
if only you will love me.

I’ll be anything you want, my love,
Your coldest night, your warmest coat,
a buddhist monk, captain of your boat,
your water diviner or celebrity of note,
if only you will love me.

I’ll be anything you want, my love,
a megalomaniac, invader of Zimbabwe,
your weather vein, writer of your play,
a politician on the make, your DJ (remixed),
if only you will love me.
