Whale Song | poetry by Rosalie Mountain

Whale Song

I think about him hard enough that his ribs begin to ache.
We sit out our sentence, wanting
& wanting & wanting.
We love so much we burn.
His wet eyes pour over me like something
& that something is baptism.
There is no force
Like lust pinning up the evening. 
Go on he says
And I begin to glow.
The world is this room
And his voice is a whale song
And God is this unmarked space
Between him and I.
