So Full Of You - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

Always so
much of you

when you are not

an earring

at the side of the sink

a knocked over bottle of perfume
beautifying the air

a forgotten panties

as cobweb

adorning the bedroom mirror

upon itself

a nylon stocking

slinking along a bookshelf

a snake reaching for the Shakespeare

a suspender belt
crowning a Bible
a bra
becoming a mountain range

its twin peaks
reflected in a lake of mahogany

a broken cigarette like a swan
floats by

your footsteps... echoing down the path
then echoing...back up again

breathless the door
opens again with a bang!

“I forgot to give you
a kiss! ”

A kiss
is deposited

upon my naked behind

the only flesh
straying out of bedclothes.

And then
you’ve gone again.

A human storm.

The room
(as always)

full of you.
