(Michelangelo): poem

Bodies intertwined like ivy

I told him he looked gorgeous

Bare chested and sprawled

content breathing in 5am purple skies

David in my bed;

marble and smiling

His red pen on leather complexion

a hushed and prickled skin

My hair strewn as confetti

on pillow cases:

congratulations

 

‘Right back at ya’

he said, as if spitting out gum

‘back at ya’

 

 

EM HUMBLE

    What a great reading of this at the KendalPoetryFestival, standing shoulder to shoulder with Hannah Lowe and Billy Letford. Amazing, thank you, really like the way you perform the closing line.
