TENDER



beet stained finger tips
counter a murder scene
bathed in golden hour glow

light tickles my bare back
as I concentrate on
slicing

precise halves, quarters
surgical, methodical
compartmentalization
is easy

I wipe sticky sweet juice
off my hands
dyed pink
like sunset kissed sky

 

A PEACH


blood blossoming
beneath pale calf skin
a direct impact
a vivid violet
an almost beauty

I bruise easily
a peach
my legs fuzzy
and glimmering
white blonde in the light

too many nights
drinking too much wine

letting him kiss me
gently
bike resting against hip

I just want to be touched
so badly
