The sound of the chains

is a music that comes

with the rhythm of breath

with the rhythm of death.


The mouths of the lovers

breathe the music of the chains.

They inspire and they expire.

They spirit in and out.


The male breathes in

what the female breathes out.

The female breathes in

what the male breathes out.


The sheets ripple with the music

the movement of the chains

the movement of breath

the sequences of death.
