Angel Tattoos

Can I recognize your disguise
creeping from bloated bellies
through an intestinal web
of potential lies
with limbic system labels,
a snake that needs to lick
pick forked veins,
without feeding shame
able to quench insatiable hunger games
bury greed with sieves
hope prey locate our grace,
to resurrect shared heartbeats,
send sirens to signal the kiss
dish out diamond refractions
then dive in to surpass sins,
grip dipped psalm palms,
holding on to papyrus pages,
so listen up before this baby wilts
found curled on the brink
of clogged sewer sinks,
praying to drain this brain
in sunset storms sharing doors
with some secret key
fitting ‘love at first sight,’
this flight filled with angel wings,
oh please oh please touch me
so I may see the birth of spring.
