The Hot Place

A Secret 


The places inside me where your words fall,
And fall, and fall-

Flowers grow.

I’m hearing what you say.
I just know.

Thought about you again yesterday.

Easier to run away than get inside my head today.

Was it what you needed?


Shivers true, Oh I feel it.

I feel you like a secret fear,

So frightfully automatic.




Shared smile.

Feel the hot space between

As it pulls you up.

Touch of skin

Just do me in.

Duty free for a lazy baby.

Tell me,

Do you like to be alone

In the dark

In the warm, warm water together?
