Deconstructed:emotions & expletives

for a moment
as a hurricane
in your bosom
where forlorn no longer
stretches me between sleep
and sentimental recollection
i’d rescind
the very beat
of my circadian
let my belly go
run wild and unruly
between the rows
of sugar cane
in your demerara.
be the broken portions
of fertile soil on either bank
penetrated deep stroke
beneath the shade of a coconut tree.
O Essequibo
drip delicious
the sticky of spice mangoes
around my lips
let the cow’s moo be music.
crash violently
into East Flatbush
the quintessence of Kaiteur.
still me baby
lull me
bring the rapids
of whitewater
and somehow
siamese mend your hilly sides
to my valleys.
switch the once sour
now sweet
of five fingers
turned star fruit preserve
‘cause i yearn
with passion immeasurable
to be home
in your arms.
wash away the petals
of these forget-me-nots
around the temple of my familiar
be my undoing
my becoming
my get it together.
O bourda
where are your sweet figs
and sapodillas
for the angostura
swimming in my America?
good god Guyana
suction every droplet
into your Lamaha Canal
leave only the sweet
the warmth
that brushed
me cinnamon
in ink permanent.
