An Instrumental


There was honey on the thigh of her bow
crying in time with his piano steps,
dripping down her hand
into sticky dilated pools
of heavy hymn.

Melting bedroom walls
sucked seconds
off the face of time
like absinthe

Heated heaving breast breaths banged like
heads
on
glass-
the crescendo of notes
digging into the backbone,
and evaporating into
ecstatic echoes of remembrance.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
