Salt-Water Poems ~ Part Two: As consciousness is harnessed to flesh

Spread the love

And just like that the ocean unfurled
opening up
to his inquiring brow and
steel blue gaze.
She wrote words on waves of wanting,
sustaining a half smile,
a whisper
and pain
hiding behind fuchsia lips;

knowing he understood her both wild and tame.
