Swallow the Sun

Image Source: Flickr (cc)


if a solar eclipse can

swallow the sun…


will we feel the speed

of gravity stop everything –

or will we carry on

frozen lifeless

shouting racial slurs?


i hope they find us staring

deeply at each other

after sex

or dancing slow –


i want to be a sculpture

of a swan or angel


anything but human.
