Inhale – deep – suspicious
under cotton clovers
in sharp seconds

a shiver – liquid skin
slithers down my spine
in wet pulse

I have your fingerprints
matched to mine
one – quick – minute

Time is essential – a sport
your goal
not mine

You kick – I lunge
a deep block
a curve over a thousand threads

stretched – an ultimate match
two pasts
two people

two moments connected
for one final win

  1. Often when I read poetry, people try to hard to put it in a form, or to kind of package it. This is the first time I have read poetry that felt like breathing – natural and with a rhythm I understand. Thank you for making me fall in love with poetry again. There is nothing nice than poetry with hear that isnt trying too hard. xx
