Poem #10/30: Valentine (In Haiku!)



Delta in-between

My thighs are two continents

Grip them and lay claim


While time stops and starts

Bodies entangled and bare 

We are hurricane


Gut me burgundy

Aubergine not rose; bruise, welt

Blood-thick and heavy


Slice down the middle 

I am the most vehement

I am slow velvet


Reach inside the maw 

Feast if you are not afraid

Of the bite back. Feast.
