If I was an angel,
I would embrace you at night
My body would melt into yours,
I would watch from the inside
Your body’s vibrations:
The humming of the viscera,
The soft murmur of the kidneys,
A lock of hair stroking
the smooth muscles of your heart.
The melody of the oozing blood in the capillaries
Lulling to sleep your hissing bronchi
an angel will take over your dreams
dozing off quietly inside
And just before you burn a seal on my lips
I vanish into the twilight.
