silhouette

 

wide open is your chest
meeting my adam’s heartbeats
drumming and swallowing
your soft breasts in the night

galloping hurricane heaves
our nonsense arguments as
we allow the silence to sting
our audible ears overnight

being together is not allergic
but we keep expensive talks
like private bathrooms hiding
in our big master’s bedroom

we let go of older resentments
and leave them burning by
the side of our marital fireplace
sealing our lips with peppermint gums

you are my venus
i am your zeus
our crowd is peeping tom
watching us splurging in sex

  3. Chester, I feel like a peeping Tom! I love the imagery in this poem – those older resentments… burning by the side of our marital fireplace… beautifully written!
