glass in the throat
there's something about that
hollow quiet in the night
that bite of air
beneath the clouded moon:
something like calm words,
falling through the gaps
between stained teeth
something like a dull thud,
a stumbling fawn
bruised by a wheel.
something about that
clinging crowding darkness
something like
a sweet invitation:
prey on us sinners,
at the hour of our death.

pick up the slack and
pick up that slack-jawed shadow of yours
dragging on wet pavement under your soles
  and hurry it along, we ain't got all day here
flex your white-boned fingers and
taut knuckles and pluck the soul from
its coffin in your slick throat
  the sun has better places to be than in your sky.

botanical malady
if i could walk
these sterling hooves along your chest
and press down, hard,
white peonies would bloom from your windpipe
petals folding over peeled lips,
floral rabies, a disease of botany.
and if you could wrap
your flaxen arms around my ribs,
champagne limbs melting silver,
a garden would burst from my mouth.

suffocate me
dare me to inhale with lungs
swaddled in cotton candy
taste my tongue, pink,
so sticky sweet and
on the trail
of your throat,
wet rainbows left
by the blushing slug
in my mouth -
kiss me with a death grip
on my windpipe
ten gifts for me,
fresh blue-indigo oil slicks
puddling dark and deep
beneath my flesh.
:iconbailey--elizabeth:bailey--elizabeth 35 4
from ivory fingertips
fall the promises
once kept curled up
in fists:
moons left in palms
from holding on
for too long.
from black-tipped rose-lipped
sprout the seedlings
of melancholy:
lachrymal dew
on tired cheeks,
ribboning trails
between freckles.

i wonder if any of you would still be interested if i tried to publish a little poetry chapbook? featuring some new content and old poems that i've long hidden from this site (because they were being stolen and plagiarized left and right)

I can't believe that something as cool and awesome as the Rainbow Gathering happens in Pennsylvania. No culture like that around here, that's for sure.
