Kinbaku is intimate.
An act of trust, a line of communication,
an art, a dance.
It is full of desire, release, power, and expression.
With every person, with every interaction, a new formation.

It is physically straining, and mentally rich.
It brings forth a vulnerability that cannot be avoided.

Kinbaku can be the mother you have always wanted,
or the daemon you have always feared.
It can offer a place of peace and salvation,
and suffering.
And joy. And beauty. And togetherness.

There is no space for thought, only reaction.
A moment feeling free of time.

A sudden lust, a sudden death.
An overwhelming articulation of what was there.
Between you.
Before it was over.
