Pick a hand: right.
This is my origami dreamboat
Fold the edges twice
And it will float for many miles
Until the night is over
Until this river falls.

Our shadows waltz
On walls and bruise
A seduction game we’re bound to lose.

Movements in gold as the doors are shut
A ghost of a smile as the sun comes up

Waters of Forgetfulness,
We down you in a gulp
Daybreak saved a plate for us
Red apples mashed to pulp.

Eyes closed with gold
A kingdom dressed in leather.

An exotic handshake.

And the promise of forever.
