you chant
a whispered music
your language a delcious
black dream of sweaty shadows
and the smell of sleepy skin

  1. Well done, with the enjambment… “black dream of sweaty shadows”
    “delirious” still applies to it, but it’s strongly attached to “language,” thus “chant” and “whispered music,” lending a further air of mystique to them.

      1. Really? That’s cool. I like salted caramel but always hated the calories. I’m gonna give this a try! I hope people don’t think I’m too weird licking my arm when I’m just about to nod off.
