Bask in Your Lap
By Omar Azam

Bask in your lap
So weak so happy so vulnerable

Bask in your lap
Drink the silk of your skin
the milk of your hair.


Mask is your trap
When your long white fingernails
peel and
fall and
leave a dead me.

Mask is your trap
Because you wound up true,
not who I guessed I knew.

Our perfect circuit
Is No longer

Synchronicity demise.

But only temp-

For when the spirals of spirals
cross themselves again

I will be back
Bask in your lap.
