‘Evolve’ and ‘Thirsty’
.
Wrote short pieces for prompts 3 and 4 for @losangelespoetsociety 31 day poetry challenge so I put them together in one post. Now I’m all caught up on the challenge!
.
‘Evolve’
No soup of mother’s love
could have prepared me for this.
No kiss or drug,
no lullaby or direct order.

I kiss the step
of your human breadth
as you evolve past me.
.
‘Thirsty’
Speaking in song.
The talk is riddled
with chess pieces.
String-quartet clutched,
lost in your cups,
but oh baby
I’m thirsty for your flame. 🔥

Day 2 of 31
.
*Masked*
.
The world drowns,
dirty & discarded like
a paper mask at a
convenience store entrance.

On my way to buy
paper plates & beer
I contemplate texting
my ex
just to prove how
stable I am.

I pull my lemon
of a car over off
the side of the freeway
an old briefcase &
a beer cracked open;
my phone on 2%

The sunset, crowning
the sky in pinks as
precious as newborn roses,
gold as brilliant as
an angel’s tongue,
&
a blue so deep & pure
stretched out across
from sea to shining sea
beckoned to me.

I pulled my mask down &
sent a cool draught of
beer past my lips as cars
muscled their way past me,
horns & middle fingers
ablaze.

Nothing, nothing
could top this.

My wishing flower looks like
a wilted rose, soft and brittle
.
All the dreams die
on paper, the earth

looks different. A moon
swoons above my head.

I wish on cop-raided bars,
battered store-fronts, and

exhaust from cars.
The flowers in the city
are not wild enough

for my dreams.
.
@losangelespoetsociety is having an all month long poetry prompt and this is day 1.
.
I’ve been in a poetry writing slump lately and hoping this will get the creative juices flowing again. I highly suggest giving them a follow and trying it out!

Adorn me
with your love.

Forfeiture of soul
to your grand bone palace.

Every sickle cell plummets;
every kiss an orchid.

Sighs, as it were
to be true,

to be lusted over by you.
No good heaven follows

the things I would do for you.
Simple hell, a pomegranate

dripping from clutched fists.
No hunger, satisfied.

Not even a little bit.

In case you forgot I write poetry 😏
