You tell me
I just wanted to reassure
That every day that you cave in
Like myself
You make inventions
Of the tiny hidden alters
In your crazy enamoured
‘o’ of your soul
Remember to remember them

i tell you
every day i go in caves
to vent out all my intentions
to desecrate the altar-natives
exposed on the sanity in my armored
entry of an ‘o’ tunneled out into the world
to forget not to forget myself in irrepressible

let me tell you
tell you let me
crave stark raving
calm calamity in 'r’ amity
braving the brave textured
tenderness in your reach
gracious breech

I tell you
Blood soaked bones,
‘r’ for remorse?
daylight sacrificed
For my earthward bound
Cascading dark force


a trio of third grey eyes peer in close like warm leaning from the mind of a woman poet beyond my imagination i am invited to collaborate with the gracious ms. kripigrey and i am moved, i hope, to words half as beautiful as hers. ever awkward<3 jillc

Amorous: Waves against damp ancient stone

in collaboration with kripigrey

I dive blindfolded
Into your torment
It is not that I don’t fear
But pain is my instinct

A torrent you are
In water strong of me
Within our body an island
Where I befriend fear
Plenty of roomy laps here
Wide enough for yours in mine

Feed a cove of solitude in this
Joining such curious bravery

From endless depth
Blue explosions
Infinite divine openings
Heaven promised
Welcome to the
Endless circle
That opens
Vortex impossibility
Succumb me
Through to
Turbulent flow
Viscous friction
Like curled toes

Her coarse
Surrendering fire
My sire
I address
Your rank
With defiant eyes
Daring stares
Thrust Authority
Against us

she is a whirlpool. she draws me in.
