Teasing --- Poetry 2012

Tired and worn down,

not feeling great;

icy stars white light

does nothing to cool fever.

Fever of dread…

writhing snake crossing

summer’s melting asphalt.

No respite…

no escape to safety…

desiring to quench thirst,

wishing to heal  burns,

your acid tongue licks

subcutaneous layers

drawing abstract patterns.

Licking, licking…

teasing soulless spirit forth…
