my tongue is
a ribbon of fire
into the sky
turning curves
higher and higher
i am riding
my tongue
like it is
lava in motion
into and through
my life

my chest
this chest
is a river
and it's traveling in from
and out to
the sea
it's carrying broke down tree trunks
and salty tears
i am riding
my chest
like it is
a wave in an ocean
into and through
my fears

my hips are
a thousand red dragons
stretching out
curling up
spreading out
and rolling back in
like fingers
like arms
like breath
like leaves
i am riding my hips
like they are
twisting roots and
unfolding seeds
into and through
my dreams

my feet are
rumbling tornadoes
circling like
spoons mixing cake in a mixing bowl
sometimes fast
sometimes slow
i am riding
my feet
like they are
gentle breezes
that turn the stars
into and through
my heart
