Poetry

Poem: Bold Typeface Lips

When I pick up a copy of your hardcover
Making sure the dust cover is intact
I gently open your pages
Discovering the inside of you
Smelling the new and freshly bound
Turning each page carefully, not to bend
As I caress your spine in my arms
Planting a kiss on your sexy endpaper
Another one on your bold typeface lips
Saying I love you in Garamond font
And promising I’ll never read
Another softcover edition again.

Freelance writer, poet, yogi and photographer from Santa Barbara, California. I write and take pictures about a variety of topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia, to my years as a family therapist, and finally to my soul-searching years in California. The things that move me may have a humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry, pictures and stories resonate with you.
