pulling & shining with diamond dust
use – fingers flailing or holding or feeling heat
cold the wetness of transformation
moonstone & pearl
red jeans thigh tight
but flexible single roll hem
secrets bundled inside & legacies too
mala & lapis for pause & prayer
infinite circles rubbing heart centre
earrings that dangle or giggle turtles
rainbows feathers roses
earlobe seats for the theatre
of the face
full round red-cheeked emotional
weeping laughing curling in confusion
hiding behind smiles
breaking out in vulnerability
dimples for dreaming
pins: book-ish best seller read more
short hair grey white flecks of dark
long enough to cover nipples
perhaps one day
terrified stacked in vertebrae
spine curling into punctuation
curly armpit hair
hippy boho wild
timid turtleneck black
Tune in this evening for Dream Poet for Hire Marshall James Kavanaugh’s book launch! Marshall does his own version of poetry on demand – all around the world! He and I will be talking poetry in June as part of my virtual book tour, so I thought it might be a rad idea for y’all to catch his book launch this evening to feel and hear his amazing poetry!
