Ripening belly
Fertile goddess undulates
Body grazes soul

Blooming curiosity
Questions unanswered

Green ephemera
Lilac tree, mauve blush of Spring
Forsythia dreams

Smoke-tarred charred feathers
Fingers stained with nicotine
Cigarillo’s ash

Squeezed through smarting gibes:
Lime juice; add tabasco sauce
To marinate wounds

R.S.V.P. to
Defiantly united
Hedonistic love

Silverfish swim silently
As anemones allocate
In inferential islets.

Standing at the edge
Contemplating life and death
No hesitation

Sail your skies like seas
Probing touch, releasing gloom
Challenge I accept
