Undoing, by Zin E. Rocklyn

The Universe eats
itself until there is nothing
but air and space

nothing but you and me.

I am the God of Undoing,
your breath my playground.
I leave you bleeding,



For something you are unsure
of, for blood, for spite,
for the rivers of me

pushing forth



Blurring the lines of choice
and adoration until

there is only you and me.

I am the God of Undoing,
your head and heart and heat
all mine
and as I extricate all that is you,
you love me all the more.
