I want to be sucked into your gaping whale jaw.
I want to be furled against the softness of your tongue
as your bone sieve scrapes away my memoires.
I want you to sand the sharp edges of my attention
and polish me like a crystal before
ever so gently.
Inhale me into your lungs like smoke
so I can hide in the murky caverns of your dreams.
I want you to erase me
but not today.
Today I have other plans
to feel this vacillating
Today I need to remember.
