“I have a thing for poetry”

by | Feb 17, 2011 | Blog, My Poems


and poets—

You turned at the waist
the podium and

the way your mouth moved

suggested kissing
as your eyes

on my shadow.

I understood.

I know my eyes
would have reminded you
of winter

and the way the leaves curl

curl into combs
and lanterns
that we might have cast

out on the ocean

in an orange stream

of stones.
