Yesterday, I licked
the vein between
your ears like
a smug tigress.

Today, I climb
trees with your
hair as rope.

Tomorrow, I’ll hold
your face in
my arm’s nest

and feed you
my own skin.


  1. ooooooooooooooh
    i love it; it's beautiful. it's one of those poems that begs to be reread for your addicting choice of words.

  2. Thanks -- I kind of just strung words and images together... doesn't really have a point, but I appreciate your comment! :)

  3. I envisioned different aspects of my relationship when reading this. Ditto to what Tishna said, it's very beautiful and I read it several times :)

  4. thank you Vicky! I purposely left it a little ambiguous, so that everyone could relate to the animalistic side of human interactions...


Do share!
