Loofah Optional

Peeling back kisses
like skin saturated with sun
given time to set
history with edge translucent

To remove is to relive
to relive is to relove
to find what I’m willing
to forget for you

Easy at first
when infatuation drives fingers
replacements made room for
as lust requires

It’s the afterwards that’s of interest
the spaces once saved
now negotiable
ready perhaps for the sun

Dowry

Collector of lonelies
incapable of being alone
tonight
will be missed
tomorrow
with all the rest
yesterdays
and yesteryous

Got enough empty
for us
self sieved
space
to be sown
constellations
we can forget
together

Pauper’s Pea

Guilt
dappled now
with practiced shrug
to sit it right

Your princess
in another castle
my coffee cup waits
daily

To sell salvation
with words you’re fed
virtue
without meaning

I’ll sleep just fine
tonight
belly full
from found delicacy
