Poem on Your Blog Weekend

I just read about this Poem on your Blog Weekend over at fellow NYC blogger Ron's blog and it seems only fit to post well a poem and step up and put my poems where my earlier blog post is and to pledge along with Ktrion to post new writing fearlessly.


Before I knew any better,
I knew you.
We namelessly shared Avenue C fluorescent lit hipster deli aisles
selling overpriced bottled american dreams of youth and health
neither one of us was buying.
The smell of your weed and whiskey had already
made love to the smell of my red wine and sex
without the slightest contact between our physical bodies.
Our sensual fingerprints had been sharing the same room for months
as witnessed by communal poems drunkenly scribbled on the walls.

I heard you,
familiarly accented sound waves,
between inhales of cigarette smoke and long swigs of beer.
I didn't need to see you
before feeling
sing-songy accented vibrations
that impregnated me years before
and penetrated more than my wandering womb.
I tasted that tongue
before it was slipped inside my mouth
when we finally went underground,
