Inter Alios

(after Aeschylus)

We fall
for each other' / clashing
colours / orbit
each heart / drunk & adored / libation
bearing all / sneak
up on each other / aloof but obsessed w/
enigmas beneath the skin
imbrue and invade / brood then turn pink as it
brews within us / the way a
glass of milk turns / a single drop of blood /
into an ambulance spinning / en
route to a mop-up / curdling in the grave
we inter each other in turn
in / alien / suffused
