Prayers to my Goddess

Had a fun time at Unamplified Voices last night. Since it was a relatively small crowd of poets, I read some of my “harder” poems from Wednesday Night Regular, including the one below. It was inspired by Charli, with whom I am sadly no longer in contact. If you’re reading this, dear, I owe you a book.

Prayers to my Goddess

Like poems tattooed
Covering her parchment
Until she resembles
My feminine ideal
Sacrifice to my ego
Not the mere woman
She is
