If by poetry

09 Jul



by poetry

I can make her

flesh and blood

my body on which to press

I will forge

such compelling words

her hungry soul

to steal

I originally tweeted these words over five years past, but liked them so much I elevated them to a blog post four years ago. If elevate is the right word. I hope you don’t mind them again. It is one of my favourite short poems.
