Four Untitled Poems

I.

The hot flow

of your hands

softens my curled up edges

irons the crumpled pages

of my little leather notebook.

 

II.

Your mouth is a bridge

of speech and lightning

that shelters my belly from the quake.

 

white black head

 

 

III.

I read the typography of your thoughts

on an axis of bent desire,

of thoughts that grip, curved like pincers,

beneath the pulsing weight of jagged fingers,

in a claw,

in a cut,

in a tear.

Your screams expunge my screams

and vanish in a flair.

 

IV.

Drink your rhymes

Spit your gin

Bleed your bones

Tattoo the moon
