it's quite the
paradox
we have created
from this...

genesis

a Decoy
born of this
secular desire
not of this earth
or perhaps of great
duration
only time will divulge
such a dirty little secret
your scent still
interwoven
upon my skin
still seducing
my tongue

it was the epiphany
of your life
little did you know
I expected that you
would pull
away
had my hand
prepared
to block the intervention
despite your groans in protest
no
for I am woman
and this night
it goes my way
my way...
down
the back of my
throat

deCoy.
the erasure begins
rhapsody transitioned
differences noted
but not
turned to
weapons
deCoy
and when I wake now
I sometimes
realize
the taste on my lips
is not Coy

One might experience "the bends" through coming up too quickly from your works.

I respect the fact that you give a lot of credit to your audience. There are definitely too many poets out there who want to spoon feed their images and their imagination to the readers. Keep up the good work...

I am dazzled, seduced and splintered like hard ice throw down upon rocks.

You are impressive. By the way, tabula rasa is a recurring motif in many of my works!
