“Oh, put your mouth on mine and leave it so ….” Mary Carolyn Davies

By Way Of An Answer 

The question arose when my greedy mouth
collapsed with hunger upon yours, and no
words could be conjured to answer the 
silence, except the pulsing of my temples,
threatening to burst like a pierced water
main sharing its pressure with umbrellas 
and hats, bathed in choral rainbows, sung
in summer rain, taking me along alterity;
the question arose when my greedy mouth
collapsed with hunger upon yours.
