Shaken not stirred


by Adam Sifre


 The warmth of the sun 

                                                                                                 no

The fresh abandoned sheet, nothing colder

a kiss a slap a scream a sigh

 

All on shaky foundation today

 

The silence which follows a kiss an enticement or chasm

slippery like dropped punctuation

candlelight and the promise of torches

 

Chihuly glass perched on shaky foundation

 

the back of her head, leaving or lust

the grasp of air or hair

taste of promise, sweetness of lie

 

our world a cheap waterbed on shaky foundation.
