love birds

we have love covered
from toe to throat
in feathers, rags and braided hair
wrapped in everything our fingers reached
as fat as over ripe fruit
bursting at the seams with the weight of the words
between us


we skin vows to wear as armor
and stride with peacock pride
along the edges of our quiet nest
no longer afraid
of falling prey
to one anothers majesty
