On the dark
of the moon
rhythm of blood.
in the fjord
of my hips.
"Sheath for a sword."
You slide your long,
its red cloth
and its bone.
A slow candle
on the mantle.
her great belly
bears the weight
Pregnant in her
girdle of bone.
her red skin.
The ache of wisdom
in a long, slow coil
from my womb,
her dark cave.
