two draft love poem


two draft love poem

though these decisions I've made aren't all mine/incarnadine footprints on suckeddry ground/and sounds of screaming echoing, you bet

were Nietzsche's yea-sayer's paw upon my head/and Edgar's Silence asking what I'd do/I'd say I'd walk the spike and sparkle path

(in better and more words) just to kiss you/in luminescent kitchen's highlighting/what makes death worthwhile if not less frightening*

*the ' is intentional**

**the * is part of the poem




Thanks to WFW regular Carrie Myshkin for this beautiful piece which they created in a recent workshop.

In Writing for Wellbeing, I provide prompts, often poems, on broad themes like love, destiny, family, the seasons. I try to forge a space in which writers can develop the theme in whatever way works for them. I'm always captivated by the results, and so grateful to the group for sharing, both in the 'zoom room' and here on this blog.
