Thirst

A tiny chasm that grows into a fracture

Imperfection

I dreamed the world cracked open

Revealing crystalline center

You pulled me in

The hollow game

And I said

I’ve been waiting forever

For to feel your grasp of me

I’d give up air

I’d give up breath

To inhale your need, however fleeting

For I am wilted in thirst

As when we, the frangipani observant

Bow our heads to the prophet

Took our turn at frankenmuth anointment

Hoping it would spare from wicked stir of time

Unleashing her malcontent

It seemed we were briefly saved

The madcap fickleness longer than

Most fragile shifting things

Including a gleam you once had

Entranced by my eyes, weeping in climax

Neck bent like reclining jasmine spilt from clay

Scent of amber and lapis, wrung on tepid air

Standing still in trance, simple pearlized pleasure

Pull my pin

There you go …

Five seconds, ten

Go real slow

When it’s

The end of

The world

  1. To me, here is where the poem came alive:
    “Entranced by my eyes, weeping in climax
    Neck bent like reclining jasmine spilt from clay
    Scent of amber and lapis, wrung on tepid air
    Standing still in trance, simple pearlized pleasure
    Pull my pin
    There you go …
    Five seconds, ten
    Go real slow
    When it’s
    The end of
    The world”
    The emotion in it as well as the alliteration (of which I am totally fond of) caused me t read and re-read and re-read it again. Nicely done, lady.

  2. I haven’t forgotten about you candy
    My fell and hurt the knee she had surgery on so I am helping her
    But, you are still in my prayers love you always
