I Want To (A Freewrite for International Poetry Month)


I want to touch you
in the most inappropriate way imaginable

I want to rub my fingers across the small
of your back with the same intricate care
I use to write words of freedom

I want to hear you moan
as I admire the parabolic arch
your body creates when only your
clavicle and your butt touch the surface

I want to whisper in your ear
a truth so sweet that the rhythm of your breath
matches the cadence of your heart

I want to arouse your soul
to the point that we are drowning
in a pool of nectar created
by the torrential downpour of your rain

I want to penetrate you
with passionate strokes
of love, until I bring
you to the verge of quaking
before pausing,
just long enough to watch you beg
for me to continue…

A-Man (A Haiku)

Allah, is that you?
Bombs and arrest in God’s name
By men on both sides.

The News (A Haiku)

The news is for sale
Stories adjusted for cash
Don’t trust the devils.
