have I mentioned that I’m an English major?

by Emily

from Paint Me A Palace

Kiss me with sounds that cling to your teeth. Grasp my hand with comma’s and apostrophes, fingers splayed against the colons of you. Press sweet Haikus to my throat, in ink that reeks of coffee. Grip my hips with analogies and spank me with a palm covered in leather bound scrawls. Leave welts that reek of poetry then make love to me until your mind is emptied of words.
