endemic (this moment called you)

endemic (this moment called you)

as long as your feet
move across the curve
of this spinning planet

and your lungs expand
with the sweet salt air
worshipping the rising tide

this moment called you
is etched indelible and deep
in the bone and marrow of me

and courses warm and faithful
through every sacred cell
that builds flesh sinew and muscle

i have tried to find where you
begin and i rest kneeling alien
turning me against me in prayer

peeled and cast aside like rind
from an orange desired only
for the juice and pulp of this fruit
