Poetry, Day Eight: Pleasure
From the tantalizing to the satisfyingly sober, have your poem convey a sense of pleasure today. Imbue it with joy, glee, and profound contentment — or, if you wish to keep it dark, write about the lack of or longing for pleasure in your life.
The Clunk of a chain
whispers, cries, please
the sweet scent of caramels
The snap of a twig
the rustles of leaves
bones rattling from the behind you
Shadows with cold hands
shadows with teeth
hiding behind you, above you, inside of you

Great work. I can almost feel it… halloween 🙂
I think it’s just in time, too.
There’s a little bite in the air, plenty of grey clouds and rain here in Seattle. Halloween 🙂
