Trickle

3243451667_051c2ae22e_n

She runs a bath to break the silence,
watched only by a silver-framed
sullen moon.

They sit, at opposite ends
of a warm thought, until words
tumble into soft vanilla light.

Her back moulded to his chest,
he washes her hair, long fingers
untangling caffles.

Intimacy lifts the grey weight
of the day, her transient relief
trickling unseen.

Stay

Stay
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

When it’s over
 

when rawthroat simmers
raindrum stills
 

breath deepens
howls subside
 

when jagged moon
tumbles hallelujah
 

dog rose petalfolds
evening moist
 

when cannons quiet
arms circle soft
 

mercury dips cool
on tender tongues
 

when coils
++++++u n r a v e l

free verse of the unfettered


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Not all things can be contained:
casketed in rhyme, scanned into
a neat line, strait-jacket-strapped,
iambic packet-wrapped –
 
 

the way
summer butter
++++++++s l i d e s
into beachfire toasted muffins,
 

the hush of a shared
alpaca blanket as it
+++++++++++silks
against salt-naked skin,
 

or you, in the morning;
charcoal lashes
++++++++lifting
through a sweat-glistened fringe.
