Purifier, poetry written by Julia R. DeStefano at Spilwords.com

written by: Julia R. DeStefano



I have a January heart.

Animal loveliness.


over coffee, tea, me

at your place at the table

to our song of mouths

calling “mine,”

the dance of fingers

in this, the play of my life –

the part where I win the world.
