Dripped down from the bottle
only to miss the glass
I dreamt of you again last night
at the tips of my fingers
The smoothest skin
those gentle curves
I slid down the dunes of your ribs
rose up to lean forth and taste your lips
awoke to no new revelations
just the sense of falling
in between the cracks
of cheaply carved oak
to sink in between cracked slabs
away from this world
and out of your mind
