Love Me Naked - Poem by Iohannes Silvaticus

Can you see me?
In the dark, naked,
Like how my love sees you
Undressed to the very bones
And place my tongue
On your candy floss marrow.
When you are old and grey,
Then I lay my hands
On your shiny new titanium
Replacement hip bones.
Reveal your lips for
Porcelain dentures,
Crack your ribs to find
My pacemaker there and that
You were housing half a soul?

As was I.

Two halves that make a whole,
Two prosthetic hearts with batteries getting old.
