lost and found in the desert

lost and found in the desert

by kirk ramdath

like the count, lászló de almásy,
i fast until i see the thing i want
i spent years in a desert to find you
now i cannot quench my thirst        
my whole body drinks from you
this is not love but greed
i must have your entirety
yet you do not diminish
are you fed by me as i am fed by you?
like caravaggio, to finally understand
the sexual power of conversation
kindling to ignite the flesh —
before i touched your body
i caressed your words in mine
breath embracing breath
vowel upon vowel
until we gave up words
for sound
