Lakmé, An Act in Four Parts




You are beautiful like melted wax

a cream colored fluorescent

that spills desire over my skin


You tasted of jasmine

tear dropped rosebuds


I’d catch you by the tip of my tongue


Lick drops of honeydew

off of your skin

you are an elixir on my tongue


You are a form

higher than those deities


But I, unlike that moon


I wouldn’t dare to speak

their names around you
