Kit Schluter


Made-you a gesture in apple orchard thine
And sealed a heart as herbs mull a tea this body
Of hills of hills in apple orchard thine
This body of hills this body of hills

Air descended lowering light it was dust
You gathered for nights steeped in dew
We drank we drank in lowering light it was dust
In dew that we drank in dew that we drank

Petrichor crepuscule thighs of the night
A thigh aglow moonlit advancing a word
An urge an urge the thighs of the night
Advancing a word advancing a word
