1.

To A Dark Moses

You are the one
I am lit for.

Come with your rod
that twists
and is a serpent.

I am the bush.
I am burning
I am not consumed.

Lucille Clifton

 

2.

Sea Poppies

Amber husk
fluted with gold,
fruit on the sand
marked with a rich grain,

treasure
spilled near the shrub-pines
to bleach on the boulders:

your stalk has caught root
among wet pebbles
and drift flung by the sea
and grated shells
and split conch-shells.

Beautiful, wide-spread,
fire upon leaf,
what meadow yields
so fragrant a leaf
as your bright leaf?

— H.D.

Arrival

And yet one arrives somehow,
finds himself loosening the hooks of
her dress
in a strange bedroom—
feels the autumn
dropping its silk and linen leaves
about her ankles.
The tawdry veined body emerges
twisted upon itself
like a winter wind . . . !

William Carlos Williams

 

4.

Wild Nights

Wild nights - Wild nights!
Were I with thee
Wild nights should be
Our luxury!

Futile - the winds -
To a Heart in port -
Done with the Compass -
Done with the Chart!

Rowing in Eden -
Ah - the Sea!
Might I but moor - tonight -
In thee!

— Emily Dickinson

After Making Love In Winter

At first I cannot even have a sheet on me,

anything at all is painful,
a plate of
iron laid down on my nerves,
I lie there in the
air as if flying rapidly without moving,
and
slowly I cool off—hot,

warm, cool, cold, icy,
till the
skin all over my body is ice

except at those points our bodies touch like

blooms of fire. Around the door

loose in its frame, and around the transom, the

light from the hall burns in straight lines and

casts up narrow beams on the ceiling, a
figure throwing up its arms for joy.

In the mirror, the angles of the room are calm, it is the

hour when you can see that the angle itself is blessed,

and the dark globes of the chandelier,

suspended in the mirror, are motionless—I can

feel my ovaries deep in my body, I

gaze at the silvery bulbs, maybe I am

looking at my ovaries, it is

clear everything I look at is real

and good. We have come to the end of questions,

you run your palm, warm, large,

dry, back along my face over and

over, over and over, like God

putting the finishing touches on, before
sending me down to be born.

— Sharon Olds

xvii

Lady,i will touch you with my mind.
Touch you and touch and touch
until you give
me suddenly a smile,shyly obscene

— e.e. cummings

 

7.

Sultry Sunday

Calloused fingertips
trace the silhouettes
of smooth, contrasting thighs.

They navigation rounded hips
with familiar fascination.
Inhalations whisper of longing.

The breaths catch...
while fingers orchestrate
an exhaled symphony of moans.

— L.M.

 

8.

I wrote poems inside of her
with my fingers.
Our story began
with her scream.
And ended with her soul
on my lips.

— A.A.

 

9.

Erotica

I made love to her on paper.
and spilled ink like passion across the sheets.
I caressed her curves in every love letter.
I kissed up and down her thighs in short sentences and prose.
I tasted all her innocence, without a spoken word.
I bit her lip and pulled her hair, in between the lines.
I made her arch her back and scream,
it only took a pen.

— S.T.P.

 

10.

Graze your fingers
against my skin
like a soldier
crossing a landmine

throw your kisses
like grenades
into the trenches
of my mouth

carve bullet holes
onto my chest
and remind me
of where it hurts

let your moans
sound like gunfire
and your breath
feel like death

i'll come
unarmed
if you promise
to destroy me

make war
not love

— Sahith Shetty
