Hidden Fruit, Wild Restraint, & Public Secret #1

Oh, the joy of it! Cymbals banging their toes together in rarified air So The doors open The corridor, dark the heart palpitates anticipating the unexpected Wild restraint and kabuki fears Yes, Yes! this unspoken osmosis into carnal being The sea opens its doors in all its rapture only to receed to...

I had a wonderful thought yesterday But I can’t remember what it was Because I didn’t write it down All I remember is the sensation Of how the shoe of an idea seemed to fit An image without a lansscape But even if I had written it down And read it today I don’t think I would understand it Because...

New communal poem. Want to join in?
