"Thrown": A Poem by Tarnynon Onumonu
To love a woman is to be brought in so close
To lean into the groove of her hip,
The curve of her breast is to dive into a universe naked,
Unshielded from impending wounds, impending doom
To love a woman is to think past survival,
To grieve on a sunlit afternoon,
To bask in that grief, a wading pool
To love a woman is to travel far outside of the realm of ego.
Where she tread, spirit grows
To love a woman is to dine on her flesh and pick her from your teeth
Only to inevitably become feast
To love a woman is to be renewed, to be phoenix,
To experience all the colors of the spectrum
To love a woman is to dip your fingers in oil spilled from a challus of gold
To love a woman is to one day be deemed whole.
