Bone of a finger grown thin,

no longer straight,

knuckles swollen with age


Where it delved?

What its naked tip touched?

What to jot down?


Mouth of the funny woman

on a beach once

who laughed, “Hey, there!”

Moist tongue

Firmness of nipples

Soft hair between thighs

Wetness and warmth


A child comforted in sleep

Smoothness of her skin

Tickling, belly shake

One little piggy

Point to the moon


Edge of bayonet blade

Firm steel trigger

Bleeding bullet hole

Eye socket goo

Engraved brass button


Jabbing air
