Tender Passion by Talantbek Chekirov

Tender Passion by Talantbek Chekirov

Stretching to meet
him in
blueshale shadows
black lines
chalky edges
as I swallow
the pale
as Fauvist ovum
in Paul Klee-eyes
~he whispers
in melted syllable
as my mouth
fragments like
of butterflies
only to regroup
in  disjointed
to stab
to gel
like shards
of shale
chalky blue:
I breathe crooked
on Cubist cue.
