solitude

thoughts run like the river
slogging
rolling over and
under

sunlight

like

*stars*
stolen from the
night sky

voyeur eyes
watch
~lovers~
on the levee

sipping wine
munching cheese
kissing
with red-stained lips
tasting
of aged oak casks
& the scent of
mothers milk
on their
breath

  1. Thanks, Nathan. Although I had morel line/work manipulation when I wrote it on Word but it didn’t paste to WordPress the same. “Dancing” was on a diagonal but I couldn’t get it to do that on WP. Frustrating. Any tips?

  2. The words and use of layout are both terrific.

    I use Blogger so am unable to advise on laying out via WordPress, however, you could consider other ways to display your work, to have the layout to your choosing. How about making your poem into a picture? You could use a simple drawing application, or make a collage and photograph or scan it and upload it as an image instead of words.
