Caveat Emptor

by

Caitrionaq

Feather-edged melodies
bought with loose change
soon swell to ragged threnodies
of operatic range


Odalisque

by

Caitrionaq

Odalisque
of carven stone
deathsongs in your eyes

Your life
was lost to wedded hell
by sugar-colored lies


Womansong

by

Caitrionaq

Woman
of
sea
flowing night humming
cloud thinking ways
flashes her voice of circular sounds
through holes in the wind
calling the moon
to
dance
a womansong.


Untitled

by

Caitrionaq

Woman
I caught the sun
in my bare hands
to warm them for you
yet...
you deflect my touch
and evade my open arms
to play with
echoes in the rain.


Joy

by

Caitrionaq

The joy within me
is like the memory
of a wave

It was
and will be again
but not the same.


Accolade by Response

by

Caitrionaq

A shooting star
lit
on my left breast
as your brilliant touch
stirred
interior pools
into rolling waves
of black velvet fire

and the universe
in me began


Holy Rollers

by

Caitrionaq

Religious phantasm
Charismatic tones
Christly orgasm
Messianic groans


Obvious

by

Caitrionaq

Naked in the sunlight
for all the world to see
...it's not my fault
if nobody notices me!


The End

by

Caitrionaq

Megaton bombs
Flowers of pain
Beauty embalmed
Life in flames


Talk to Me

by

Caitrionaq

Little black words
drift from our lips
to shatter
mid-air
& crumble
& fall
to mix with the dust
of all thoughts
great & small

ashes to ashes
dust to dust

& the silence
has nothing
to say to me

as it has
in the past


Dancing Alone

by

Caitrionaq

Did you reach for me
reach for me
In the day past
I felt you
reach
and I danced away
swaying
The shell of me
almost
you touched
the shell ofme
Across the day
stretching
and I danced
to the light danced
out the dark
I grow weary
light elusive reach me
touch
me before
I fall from the day
Dance me
against your skin

I began in the dark and
no one
has finished me yet
