From A Wool-Basket - Poem by Adryan Barnathan

Teasing wool
from a wool-basket
spinning a thread
with trembling hands
instinct weaves
a ball of passion
at the navel
into yards of love

    delicate, yet levels deep in erotic. i want to play certain said balls like a kitten & a ball of wool- whoa. took it too far? i love the simplistic womanhood of this little piece. i hope you write more like these. Sus (Report) Reply
