au naturel

It is so easy to be alone

lock out the excel charts

clawing at your skin

and let me walk instead

within your walls.

unlock the door and let me in

I’ll sleep au naturel

under the stars

imagine the full moon

shining down upon

our embrace.

it’s so tight inside me

nothing can release

the wounds

except your touch.

I gave up on everyone else

ever knocking me down

on my knees

with pen and ink,

and then you

walked in like a song

on a rainy drive.

i pause

i wait

i’m too patient

i can make every conversation

come alive

and have a word orgasm

over poetry.

use poems as foreplay

touch as an afterthought

to words.


so lost in the trees

i can’t escape.

i heard you though

you were in my head

and the bright tablecloths

at that cafe shop

are the background

to the movie

i write.

we’re the stars

of the underground.

it’s velvet in my world.

it’s free

and you’re the only one

invited in.
