luncheon & siesta


fighting naked and the minds
are sung in china plates and spoons
of luncheon hatred and lonely rooms

drinking basil water and the vessels
of basic heads are sending metaphors
into the woods of countless monsters

sleeping under the cold sheets of
winter beds and dreaming many
atoms tucked in vital signs of their skins

uttering the sweet love and saliva
shocked in the proposals of bachelors
they ended in churches of love and i do’s

  1. Terrific poem. The first stanza caught my attention and the flow and pace just ran beautifully.

  2. Ziggy Mang says:

    Brilliant fast-paced imagery! Romance is well depicted when we jump around and play with a lot of words. Good stuff!

  3. I agree with previously stated use of imagery and pacing. The triplets serve this poem well. Nicely done, Dave.
