When the Fire Burns, the Phoenix Rises Out of the Ashes
[by S. David] [art by Chris Bleicher]

Must I talk
In metaphor
Must I speak
In euphemisms
Should I use
The Classical
The Latinate
Rather than
The Saxon derived
Love my love
Love me
Resurrect me
Rejuvenate me
Put your mouth
On me
Let me feel
Your fingers
Your lips
Caress me
Ignite me
Your body
Let me
Come in
Bring me in
Let the volcano
Let the Phoenix
From the ashes
