Rookie (Lisbon, Portugal)

Brown Leather Jacket


You are the moist tip of my tongue;
the silent pause in the air
I take in - and the one that breaks out.

You are a selfless act in the river of my blood,
taking this tossed-about spirit,
and folding it gently against your breast,

I am warmed, safe and believing
inside the comfort
of your brown leather jacket.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
