Wasp in my glass

Monday 22 September 2008

Like velvet paw
your touch intrudes soft
on my lips, unadmitted
unannounced
so that in horror and wonder
I explore
until discovering the violator
I recoil appalled
at that softwarm kiss
at the catastrophe you nearly were

 

but ahead of alarm:
the intimacy
of your insinuating caress.

    What lovely feedback, thank you; also for dropping in. I have digestive biscuits to go with the dark chocolate…

    Just thought I’d drop in over here. I love this poem. It’s fantastic. “The catastrophe you nearly were”. Beautiful line. Makes me think of so many things.

    Thanks!

    Thanx, Lilac! This really happened, though it wasn’t a glass but a can of Coke. Not terribly poetic, ringpulls etc.

    I only have a couple of pieces of my own writing up on this blog SO FAR… but it’s a brand-new baby blog, and there are going to be plenty more. 80)

    This is a fantastic poem, I love the appalled recoil from the violating wasp.
