Sunday Secrets

distilled and aged, a pen tip tongue prick kiss claws
crushed dandelion light treads through sallow bourbon glass
a fingerprint tick type taps hollow word through the wall

splinter boards brace worn-out window shades through which I saw
dust breaking sun beams searing ink-blot hymnal wit such mass
distilled and aged, a pen tip tongue prick kiss claws

leather-lick dull scrape taste hit blood stream gall
tree knot stomach pirouette point twist barre class
a fingerprint tick type taps hollow word through the wall

lil fur boy whisker-wackin lip smack cracker crumb in maw
Miss Milly pew-hop pastel red shoe drop clack bump ass
distilled and aged, a pen tip tongue prick kiss claws

sof rat scurry cross hot wood slat sun cut prism light raw
rainbow stain rub cheek ain’t got but a stub beak that lass
a fingerprint tick type taps hollow word through the wall

an I paint smile on Milly bell toll belly roll bird caw
sallow bourbon quick smooch tip toe trickle sweat sass
distilled and aged, a pen tip tongue prick kiss claws
a fingerprint tick type taps hollow word through the wall
