Four Lines

I laugh and pleased by my delight
you amuse with roller coasters,
Chicago and alka-seltzer
a tale too silly to describe

Up

in a lacy cup
count the stars in the Milky Way
look on the other side of day
and watch the sun rise rolling up… 53 more words

365

Four Lines

when your lips settle into that
smirk pretending an innocence
your arms belie, insouciance
becomes you

365

Four Lines

I close my eyes to hear the rasp
of the night’s stubble on your chin
as I trace the shape of your grin
teeth catch my fingers and I gasp

365

Four Lines

the sound of your reply still lies
on your lips stopped by a single
touch, electricity tingles
and I close my eyes

365

Four Lines

the rise of your breath checks the glide
and I lift my hand from your hips
to place my fingers on your lips
stilling the sound of your reply

365

Four Lines

falling off this corduroyed ridge
my hand slips into that hollow
arch of hip and rib softly slow
gliding lazy from edge to edge
