Poem: Love's Wine

Hummingbird heart
pushes out toxins
of red wine and cabbage
Cockroach mind 
scurries in search of crumbs 
and dried yellow cheese
Desperate parts of me
want to love all you offer
my stomach not use 
to pure nectar rejects it
Forgive those parts of me
that lean against you
as a tree planted too
close to the wall

  1. Easy to see/feel this one, especially
    "Forgive those parts of me
    that lean against you
    as a tree planted too
    close to the wall"

    Are you doing NaPoWriMo, too?

    Yes, but not posting everyday. Was super inspired at last night's open mic. Interesting energy there
