Sleepy, Hollow


Headless.
Hoarse.

Man,
the aftermath of my
-grain days sucks, sew
-ing nothing but metallic
silence, trembling post
-violence barely better
than the pain.

I wish you, in
-stead, may pleasure
and tulip bed
-lam, chalk and long
talks and jasmine
and gentle quiet
rain.

    My sweet Shawna has a migraine today. As we all know, I can relate. Just sending some head-hug-love. And chalk.

    Oh my, this is gorgeous! I love it.

    Faves:

    “metallic silence”

    “trembling post-violence” (Ha!)

    “may pleasure
    and tulip bed
    -lam, chalk and long
    talks and jasmine
    and gentle quiet
    rain.”

  3. “metallic silence” – that’s a great image.
