something like water

silver threads silk spooling my fingers. Body like bread crumbling in my arms. Something like water. Carrying  current voice of an ocean fluid, yet full. The glass on my lips warm and cold. the fumes of my breath the gold on my neck the hail outside of my window. It is you. Imagine opening your…

Bloody oranges

Pierce the fruit, ripe and supple. Blood dripping down your chin fingers and skin. Peel perfume; Citrus zest. the orange wears red lips and whiskey breath. Good with lemon and lime, likes seltzer too. Orange cream-sickle too good to be true. Take a bite, she’s juicy. Grapefruit’s cousin You may not like her, but that’s…

Dirt Pudding

Pigmented scents of leather flowers fly by fauna from afar Brownie soil and velvet violets draft a woodland memoir. Doe deer dance with leaping locusts, Moss proposes to the twine, Swooning loons sing sultry serenade Moonlight drips onto shoreline A sour sun once shriveled raisins as it grew drunk from cypress sap. Now Dionysus holds the…

Succumb to this mediocrity of unseasoned pleasure. Get the windows undressed, sip on a cup of caffeinated treasure. Reply to stale emails take a swim in chlorine. grab a post-workout beer force yourself to get clean. take a hot shower; call up your boss puff on some flower. Touch on yourself, Feel up the typewriter…

She’s a pervert, real wet and sick keeps it classy; but hell with the shade Bitch puts the ass in sassy. Leather hugs her tits Red stains the lips, Chains ice her wrists Glock grips the hips All-dark aesthetic black knee-high boots whip on both thighs stuntin’ looks. Ready for the fix she’s looking to…

Wishing Well

It hurts, sometimes to reminisce on memories of happiness. But this I say, and it be true I’ve always been in love with you. I am not sad, I will not cry, because I know that I did try to make you laugh to keep you warm and be your calm, after a storm. I…

Flame

Okay, I see you. Hips swimming in hot pools of body and breath, eyes closed, all you feel is sound tugging at your waist. He’s pulling your hair you come up for air And I help. Wish it wasn’t so unfair. Greedy, but all I want is to share, you. Caress this radiating energy In…

Ballad for B

My dearest friend, The time has come for me to say, that I am no longer in dismay. But in the nights of endless blue, your face I still see, my thoughts are still you. Aside all quarrel, clash and tire, Inside my heart remains a fire. So infinite, this candle burns for you. Through…

Andromeda and Milky Way

He is the Universe My lips mouthed, As I traced the constellations of freckles on his back with my fingers; Kissing the stars and moons orbiting his heart. I watched him flutter his eyes closed, Two chartreuse wreath nebulae, As the last bit of sunlight kissed the Earth goodnight. I gazed at him falling asleep,…
