The wooden canopy kept guard
While he and I stole each other.
The light dawned on our dark bodies
Naked and trembling, urging and taking.
I felt the new body, its breath fresh off the foul smoke,
Traced and digged the skin
Searching and finding marks
Meant to etch my memory.
To touch and make my own
Him to whom I wish to belong.
In the arms of the unknown
Revealing all that is to be seen, done and known.
