for Chanel

Thought I’d share another poem from my book Wednesday Night Regular before I head off to the club. Hope you like it.


Wednesday Night Regular Coverfor Chanel

She sits before me
Crumpled muscles
Under silky skin
Awaiting attention
Of smoothing hands

She is a river
April thawing
Moaning after
Long winters
Of discontent

She is Atlas
Carrying worlds
With these shoulders
Now shrugging
‘Neath my fingers
