Today's poem is by Natasha SajÚ
What you do to me. With me. What I've
Learned to do with you. A language
Of bliss, a sublingual, interlingual,
Bilingual tale that lasts from labial
Lark through the long light of dawn.
A trickle of terroir layered in taste, liquid
As thirst. More than touch, less than labor,
This lesson in tilt and lather. The tang of a lyre
Of skin, a lick of liberal tact in tandem.
Our own langue d'oc, turtled in time
And tinkered by thrill. It's not lex, not law
But logos, the tabor and talisman of love.
