My heels on the cool tiles of the waters

My heels on the cool tiles of the waters
and the moon obscured through my auricle,
so I dare rest in the groove of glass hills
where the night reflects me as a sigh,
for in truth, a kiss is my only sense organ.

And soft as silver that you nearly touch,
satiated, I complete the works of the gods.

That is, discharging my lungs and drinking and
amazed between breath and shadow, feeling
how my hands fearfully in their warm hollow
stroke the cold fingers of their creation.
