This is the thing about me and you.
It’s that we come from the very same thing
and we return to the very same thing.
Earthbound, ours is a love story laced with mineral matter.
I am phosphorous / magnesium.
I am red bone bare. I am copper / nitrogen/ sulphate /
I am thirsty /parched
I want to be the garden that grows on top of your soil
To know the weight of your hipbone on mine, tectonic.
(I want you to) lean in soft bodied and whisper-
you will return to me and we will turn into the garden
