Kyphi incense smells like sex
Sliding smoothly under and over itself
As it burns

Curling clean and sweet smoke
An edible fragrance rising into the room
Kyphi incense smells like sex

Ex-lovers to 17 year locusts hatching
Cinnamon and cassia bark, cedar and sweet flag
As it burns

Wine and honey and raisins
Waiting for a flame
Kyphi incense smells like sex

Smoking down her life into a spoon
She smiles from across the room
As it burns

Close your eyes as I close mine
Embrace this soft retreat
Kyphi incense smells like sex
As it burns

Smiling in the dark, her eyes like ice
Piercing coldly — a pin through a grasshopper
Kyphi incense smells like sex
As it burns

But I'll dance one more time

But I'll dance one more time

Was I made to be this way,
Or have I fallen?

You have fallen
You were made to fall

You were made to exhale and resign
But you'll dance many more times
