Adultery


Your body -
Swollen
Like
A river
In spate.

Your tongue -
Moving all over
Ferreting out
Little secrets.

Your lips -
Moist,
Pliant,
Urging me in.

Your eyes -
Half closed,
Half open,
Seeing in me
A silhouette
From the past or present.....

More often,
It is not
The body
But the mind
Which commits
Adultery...

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
