the lights braid into each other
stain the backs of my eyes,
waves of slicked shimmering hues
and sparked electric sounds
make my skin feel alive,

i catch on to flashes of you

heart thumping when it figures out
you’re right there, i think
somewhere through the dripping tangles
of limbs and twisting hips and too many
spectral mouths on mine,

getting lost in pairs of rainbow lips
to let the colors restart me again
