Tonight

Leave your gentle at the door.

Let me kiss you
and
make your lips quiver
like
sex on a broken bed.

Personify my eyes to make them
walk
the landscape of your body.

Tonight,
you are the grounds of California
and
I am the earthquake
shaking
your city of thighs.

  1. Thank you for becoming a poet…”personify my eyes to make them walk the landscape of your body”…

  2. @bugganni, this was worth the wait. The meanings coiled within that last verse (my favourite), like Cali’s propensity to earthquakes, the word play with ‘city of thighs’. Thank you for this.

  3. …nicely romantically crafted but… is “Leave your gentle at the door” supposed to be Leave YOU gentle at the door?
