Where Teeth Meet Neck

I came to sacrifice my blood
to the mosquitoes

They can sip the wine
the same as I

There is fire in the bite
that ever lingers

One more trial upon your path
won’t sting so bad

I came to open my heart
at the river

It can taste the bottle
turned upside down

There are answers in the tongue
that can deliver

One more kiss unto the night
of scarlet gold
