Rise & Set

Poetry & Prose | September 25, 2017

No words, just lips and teeth

Crescents and puckers, dimples and wrinkles

Morning breath and mussy eyebrows

We stretch into the cotton-blend coziness of our quietude

*

No words, just lips and teeth.

Gritted and pursed, gnawing a fleeing truth

Twisted fingers and averted eyes

We wrestle with the ropes of our reticence
