You will not find poetry anywhere unless you bring some of it with you. Joseph Joubert

The Third Day of May

I hear a pain talking
behind my left earlobe

I realize my stomach is critical
of literature and realizes a few
sylvan principles that rule the woods…

They said I shouldn’t sleep
lest I’ll be lost in the purple ribs
and the incense that’ll blow off my nostrils

There is nothing that I could remember
Just the weal of your name
that beautifies my tanned skin
And shards of those kisses like splinters
and the wrestling pulp wish could
redesign what is elemental, inevitable
And furnish myself
With more poison-ivy…

I’m lost within the third of May
My stomach so critical of this feel
and the pain that nested
Whispers unto me
A vicious design that is cuddling me
Could this sun disinfect the valley of wounds?
