Corrode me

Corrode me until I’m undone. Corrode me in the setting sun. Corrode me with your warmth.

Corrode me until I fi z z le and sink into the scorched earth

Oxidize me with the salted air and dunk me in a beaker

Kiss my flames until I’m weaker

I will oxidize you and surmise you & take you at your word

I will pull you down into these catacombs and wreck and rebuild you with my solid words

I will tuck you into a tomb and ravish you from the outside

I will singe apart your rushing tide

i will haunt you and tantalize you

and vaporize the world above you

then

tank me down

plunge me

Flicker my world a part

corrode me all over

until we break
