Things that creep by Bernadette Richards

Bernadette Richards | November 19th, 2017 | poetry | No Comments

Poem

It lies concealed
Like a well-hidden pornography collection
Hello my darling
Ready for a measure of counterfeit affection?

It shifts and shields riddles
Yes, every drop of feral resin finds a crevice
Just as gravity flits
when she senses treason

There goes the procession
With precision, they pace, like starving hyenas
A game of hiding underneath
wilting foliage

You ask for another chance
So you can handicap the sun with the ash of bitter jawbones?
Ever mindful of the fragile thread of a screw
Route out
Before the spine severs its own vertebrae
