A Lake Of Lips - Poem by Mark R Slaughter

You drip inside
pull off the shirt in love

Ease upon my

Ride out reality

Scream it

Come it


I never saw your mind –

I never sought

I took its face
lake of lips
tonguing to the glide of
married hips

We’re no more a cigarette
burning out a risk of death

“You’re red” was my retort
“We’re done” your sorrow bought
