at the peak

of pleasure she

thrusts a flag into the ground

gliding gloating grinning glowing glorious 

she turns her gaze to the fiery sky above and the world

at her feet drenched in glitter she dances spinning ‘round

and ‘round until she meets the emptiness of the abyss floating 

into the sunrise carried by the wind moons waxing and waning 

over the night sky of her heart rivers splashing over the banks of her veins 

galaxies expanding to the brim of her cells she flares up like a star for lightyears to come
