Three

three

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One

Her face shows the great

compassion and tenderness

she feels for this miserable boy.”

Tea and Sympathy

Robert Anderson

You smiled gently

at gesture,

you smiled psalms

waiting until

the empowering moment

of release,

while laughing,

to raise my free

hand to your

consummate

blouse.

Separated.

A blouse liberally

opened, accepting.

Flexing.

A benevolent child’s

gift of sufferance.

Sighing.

Years from now

when you talk,

and you will,

be kind.

Bare.

Revealing.

Truths pressure

in one palm.

 

Two

Years after the first

I found you

your legs up,

cares flowing down

spine,

hair,

grace,

mind,

soft

muscle.

We joke

and parody,

yawn,

howl,

until the field

of pleasure

lay barren.

 

Three

Lilies cup rain

fall from bitter

roots of water

where we both stood,

in one another eyes.

      Thank you Tony. “Three” is one of those poems I have been changing around for years and never feel comfortable with. I appreciate your gracious words especially with this one.
