Lady Blues

Lady Blues

a short compilation in verse

i like baths
in wintertime
and the taut 
exhale
of my breasts
between your
teeth

***

but darling, my
legs are tired
and my
mouth
needs
loving

***

look, my darling, a
nightgown of silk
the door is ajar
and someone’s
consumed 
the bed
a heart races 
in the aftermath
of the kissing
a single thread
is torn, a tangle
is fastened in the 
down between
fingers,
you blind
fumble
for the 
marrying 
place
the sweat 
on my brow 
is rising
thrust of 
a chin
breasts are
stones
my knees 
knock the 
floor
yes
