Dragon’s Den (Poem Draft)

Dragon’s Den (Poem Draft)

A cave
a faint golden glow
a whale’s rib cage
captured in stone
arches above you
the gilded gleam
of a serpentine woman
watches you
watch her
her eyes
burning
you
whole

We Are Children

We Are Children

a tantrum
a fit
an explosion
of expression
from 2 years
of life
and I
breathe in
and out
in
and out
in
and
out
for you
and me

I will
your flame
to shorten
make it smaller
I demand
and yet
with each inhale
with each exhale
I wish to ignite
and flare out
with you
for we both
are tiny
specks of
cosmos
filled with
large
crashing atoms
and this
this responsibly
feels
to much to bare.

What I always wanted to Say . . .

What I always wanted to Say . . .

What I always wanted to say to you lied underneath lake pebbles.

What I always wanted to say got tangled in water lily roots.

What I always wanted to say seeped down deep beneath grim and sand.

What I always wanted to say was stirred up by an earthquake.

What I always wanted to say got swallowed by a catfish.

What I always wanted to say was mixed with bile.

What I always wanted to say was fried up.

What I always wanted to say was served with hush puppies.

What I always wanted to say was dipped in tartar sauce.

and swallowed by your lovely lips.
