life lines

she said,
"i can teach you to read these maps;
to listen to the gentle thundering
beneath your bones and the way
the hallowed ground sings
and screams that love
is the opposite of gravity.

and i'll dance in your palm
when the moon is on fire
warning of battles to come,
where worlds are tasted
on blood stained teeth
and the road of our spines
all cracked and worn
leads back
to where it all started."
