The sun is mild now

Lullaby and cherry

That we saw

Dry leaves Sticks

of Wood in my plate

this is the House of arts

Tiptoeing around

Half asleep

Half naked

She’s stretched out

Bare shiny legs

And Crossed feet

A simple white embroidered

dress

With a Worcestershire Sauce

Stain on the

Tit Moist

Open lips and

Wild hair

A hand is reaching out

getting closer

feeling the warmth of

Her skin

A hand is shaking with emotion

A tear is shed

There she is

The time The place she’s it all

The breath is short

Now

Leftovers

Ants

The Game is over

Now

In the House of arts.
