Apéritif, a poem by Craig R Kirchner at Spilwords.com



written by: Craig R Kirchner


Great art is inspired,
by the sub-conscious,

she nonchalantly mused,
lying naked on the pink comforter,
sipping Pastis and water,
head propped on her palms,
a tiny glowing sphinx reading poems,
with Cleopatra lips.

I half listen,
knowing the words,
knees at her waist,
molding child-like cleavages with id,
tracing illusions
in firm, tan, sand of spine.
