Amabilissima: Written Roses

Smashwords Edition

First Affection


Warm moon with ground up roses sprinkled all about the surface

Perfect alabaster curve all covered up in tiny grains of ginger

A face so fair stars nested in its windows

And all along it many freckles

Taste a while

Sweet breath like peppermint

How potent

And commanding to the nose

How warm and cool it is at once

How stealthily it crept from lotus lips

To lungs hardly attended for the thought the mind were dreaming.

His smile tasted like hummus.

Project a moment

His light frame on yours

And know, each night, my evening meditation

His hands were an extension of his wrist

Like pretty talons on a sparrow

Those fingers, frigid flanges

Danced along my trembling vision
