Damask

earthen wrought a single thought sculpts the arch of your back tense and slack in masterful depth wielding a wand of wanting~ Beneath the drab feathers of the female a generative force is concealed, a balance of power her nature reveals.~ © M.G.

Prevarication

convex concave slaves to lyrics gathered from their trade awkward dancers of cryptic semantics a shade of chartreuse the obtuse betrayed as i feed them slack turning projections back and i am saved by beams of verse the quasar pulse saddling a universe ~ I listen to what you say, and hear what I mean, […]
