sleeping beauty leather & red hair

Posted to Action Poetry

does the light catch
her breath
in just the escaping fashion
you had been dreaming of?
her hair splayed out like an umbrella
against grey silk pillow
and you are captured
by her waking
a mouth tied shut by her morning sounds.
you will pass nothing to her
but the silence
of one
with which she will gather snow
in her hands
offering it to you
as the solid drink
of her fleshy want.
