Body Electric

your body is invasive

paying armies of bloodthirsty

mercenaries

 

a conquistador

burning everything it touches

searching for the promised gold

 

an animal

in the high grass ready to leap

one sound ahead of its prey

 

a lost child

leaning against the wall

unable to speak of its sorrows

 

devouring everything

and slowly burning from the inside.

  1. Like a bull tiptoeing through a china closet I seem to have gained the scent but not the gist of of the delicates that surround me. I apologize for my cloddish entrance ! [ Sometimes I can be an insensitive jerk] [ Sorry ] It seems that lately I have been the recipient of many comments from numerous bloggers through the day on Sunday, and I have come to feel spoiled from the attention. I had missed your repartee from the week before love. How quickly we are spoiled ! ; )
