[tab id=1]Cotton words dipped in The Nile invite me
with kisses
to capture in a bottle.
Enrapture me with life

Years engraved in sediment
Excavate to unearth bones,
memories scattered like ash
across Disneyland

Capture and drink desires
with milk
to neutralize
the deadly taste

Inject me with nectar
to resuscitate my corpse
My soul buried in the Sahara
for lizards to desecrate
Forever forgotten in abyss[/tab]
