Rabbit Skin

The traveller has my rabbit skin

Velvet smooth
desire widens
sinks deep
in the gape

Craving 
my indifferent fingertips
seek
the back of my neck

I shouldn’t explore this luscious terrain
on a slow Sunday afternoon 
sitting alone in an empty cafe

Am I seen
as I run my fingers across
my wrists
begging loudly
for a tender grazing of teeth

so much of me
untouched for years

I have let things go
fleshfull
yet unfulfilled
by the ravishing
the knowing
of my rabbit skin 

mouth and thighs 
open and swell
honey pools
waiting for a precious
sucking
stamen beating
with the flick and flutter

a passing hummingbird
wants
only one taste
he did not want more

Pelted
I am left behind
cold
and wanting




Shattered





Fill the long cracks
made wise waiting
for the right
direction

Decisions hang
slack 
souring
in the turbid belly
of balance

It is time
to catch
a glance
a toe-hold
a break

 fall over
the fucking high note

Placeholder

I have no words

the anxiety spilling
over into my dreams

I will come back 
to begin
again

Diapause



Tucked deep
inside a belief

A shell 
layered with thick
pearl and pain

Bound and gagged
by all the yarns
woven

Inseparable
without boundaries
Locked-in

Here 
I wait
weather 
neglect
watching
unseen

Knowing

I will 
survive

October's Poetry Project




I am taking on a project this October.  A poem a day for 31 days.  I still have my April poetry project to revise but find the muze is more generous when I am regularly providing the attention that is craved.  

This undertaking will require me to set aside my own inner critic and let the MuZe have her way with me.  
This means it can get a bit messy.  Awkward.  And beautiful.

 All works are drafts - feedback is appreciated as is kindness.  Thank you for sharing this journey with me...

As my fellow traveler Tressa Breen proclaimed - Onward through the ink and fire!
