Soul Soot Poetry

#poetry, #prose

love like sheep in wolf’s clothing

we knew better

we weren’t for each other

when it’s all for attention

there’s no need to mention

the obvious

you read me Dylan Thomas

a song, a favorite artist

you’re too old to know who Phoebe is

the fates were against us

doesn’t take a psychic

or a scientist

it was just a rush

my heart, a bird

a song with wings

flew to you

with everything

hit your window with a thud

set aside, kid-gloved

offer friendship as a ruse

you ask for lukewarm love

just another game to loose

when there’s fire in the blood

i’ll stop haunting the place you live

inside me

waking up your memory

no more running

in a red dress

through your forest

i’ll forget your address

~A.M. Troester, Red Dress (A Siren’s Hymnal)
