Sepia


Crawling jade hearts
Out of the bleeding tool-box:
Cerulean sea-horses
Swallowed in
The child’s mouth:
Love is an orange
In an imperfect snowfield,
The seizures of amber
Her eyes situate
Fluttering,
Her body all-out
Is untrustworthy,
The waves of the
Effluvious cavalry
Take her outwards,
Beneath the current’s mumbling,
Her body feels like penetration,
The salt may be a child,
A fetus of whispers
The world in everything is white
The night is the whitest,
Next to her body
Is where I go to work:
Her lips the plate I eat,
The eyes rolling captors
Who can shove me off
With a glance away,
Prehistoric hungers
Diving anew.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
