to commemorate the release of my collection ‘FROM MY FRONT STEPS‘ on June 5,
here’s an except from my first collection ‘A DISTILLED SPIRIT.’
do you remember that day you shushed me?
silk finger on my lips stilling
clouds fell and you
caught them, dabbed
tears from my eyes, stole the
sun’s rays, stabbed them
through my heart.
mercy killing, so was whispered
i could not talk, not
with your fist down my
windpipe, sweet charm tearing
i should have thanked you, admitted
you were never
i was the quiet one
you so insane.
