cool water conversation at 1:12 a.m.

*for tonalti*

i said your voice
was crystalline
washing over me like the hands
of Rio Magdalena.

you remarked
that these waters may
have flames within them
with a laugh full of marzipan and chili paste;

but i know
there is always a tingle
to enlightenment
and baptism
sears as well as it soothes
and you serve both well
with your lips.
