Soul Soot Poetry

#poetry, #prose

i know you long to be the gentle seduction,

the sunny disposition

those purple painted passages

of spring

but you’re too violent to be a violet November

too much death and night

in your blood

enchanted energy

oh so tempting

you are the fall

your words

standing naked in Eden

daring to look down without shame

at who they truly are

skin and scale

you are the apple

poison in your blood

a bored and jealous


a serpent-heart held

between legs

the curiosity

the longing

the pseudo bravery stupidity

the humility and the savery

you are the whole damned story

~A.M. Troester, November (Soul Soot Poetry)
