his eyes melted the walls she used to escape into

she fixed a vowel to her sleeve
the blood in her illiterate veins flowed
in the opposite direction
her pauses were infinite
his tongue mimicked her silence

ignorance dissolved on the handrail
steps which had no ending
pushed adrenaline through their exchange
the words were insignificant
but she listened
she could feel the heat radiating
from his heart
his thoughts were screaming
slurred desires

his form was a vessel
fondling unclothed saxophones
with what seemed to be
golden hands
