clawing at the grounded moon #34

i have forgotten almost completely all of the trysts that involved human bodies and human bodies alone spread jasmine whole jasmine what were we even doing before the moon became all that was in front of us armed with blood disarmed by blood we really did believe the tree only went as high as we could reach we really did believe that all that fleshy fruit was meant to guard more fruit
