La Petite Mort

Your breath clings to me,
A second skin, keeps the world
Though it is your touch
Makes so much
Of what I am, I cannot say
I would not give up
Its protection
To make me vulnerable
To your fingers, hands, arms, lips,
Enfolding the heart of me
Without hesitation
To destroy me
With your love.

The small death that surrounds you
That is my air.

Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.

Happy Friday the 13th!

At the club tonight, remember:

“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”

– William W. Purkey


Happy Friday!
