Shadorma 305, 306

From the book The Immediate and No Sooner, 2021.

Shadorma 305.
I lay down
on the bed my head
swimming a
slow backstroke
up and down a neon pool
oh my head. My head.

Shadorma 306.
How tender
your soft precise lips
smiling red
and vicious
caress the words you send to
skewer gentle souls

  1. I’m probably going to jinx myself – but I haven’t had a raging migraine for a couple years!! I link it to retirement – lost the pain in the butt and my biggest headache!

  2. That is a brilliant description of that type of searing headache. I also think you have done an excellent job of conveying the type of person who appears superficially one way but is actually quite the other.

    • Thank you. Headaches, I don’t get them too often but of course I want to lie down when I do get one. And I think there are a lot of people who seem soft and gentle and it’s all fake.
