pedal tones (a tonal drawing written in poetic form)

pedal tones
(reflection of Miles’ “Blue in Green”)

you alone drawn as praying fingers brown
is a taste savored sweet in my plummed lips
and gently breathed back in you
is me in you

a word in me toned from dark brown ground
is heard and caressed in your nippled breasts
and slowly poured back in me
is you in me

a tear honed waiting near your eyes brown
is a soft silence heard and grown in me
and quietly sown back in you
is me in you
is me
