How I Do Know,I Match You,Your fingers press up,your glasses. by the side rim so slim and black,I tap your nose,like an experiment in Chemistry. and with each touch,of only my finger s tip you blink. And yesterday my cat stopped purring,I pressed so tired lips against.
Your neck to hear your warm pleasure,Then later I bit hard into a parmesan. block and accidentally munched the rind it was bitter. and your laugh was warm too,my cold blood needs red iron. but my lips are a somehow natural blue,Sometimes my system is faulty. some faltering mechanism,stemming surely from my make. but you pour oil hot into,a pan and fry an egg over easy.
this never fails,Chelsea Rebekah Grimmer,Diverse Voices Quarterly Vol 2 Issue 5 8. LET S NOT GET MARRIED,on her fingers,butterscotch,steam feather windows. Blue mosaic table,tumble dry treble notes,on a high back stool. pin down a set list,Owls on a nylon power line,A case for safety. wooden floors,and way far away,We hide from the dark.
