Still Life This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


i can taste this
surreal
portrait of ecstasy
like champagne
slidesas easy as silk
down your throat
the way you feel
when the arms ofdawn
slide around you
and enfold you
and protect you
and hold you
when you are tangled in sheets
and arms and legs get lost
and seem torun together
the way a single thread
gets lost in a tapestry
i'llhang you up
or get hung up on you
so pour me another glass
of thatsweet concoction
that i drank from your lips
sweet like candy
smoothas honey
and intoxicatingly rich
give me a little more
of those songs
that we sang together
as we watched the sun set
and then rise
andthen we'll go to sleep
together
side by side
wrapped around forever
all alone with me and you
