JEFFREY C. ALFIER
The West Wind Forsakes Hyacinthus
I thought you'd be one to seed the light years, your flesh forged behind Clio's drapery -- that velvet reign; a dawning solipsist. Yet when you leapt, and your sweet flesh sparkled I nearly abandoned the east-bound fleets. But you ignored my breath upon your thighs. You proved too boundless to be my captive so I blew the tainted discus off course. For you loved instead your god Apollo. To keep his lips from you I smashed your brow.

POETRY requires a mature audience ENTER only if you are 18+ <18Big Fish

MARYANN HAZEN-STEARNS
I Must Be Ice
I must be ice or at least the spider thin line of frost that tracks across your window pane, that branches out from the center splinters into blue-veins doubles, triples, again and again until your view is blinded in the crystalline shine of mine. You might melt fingertip circles there on the glass, but you won't touch the perfect white pattern which accumulates overnight. You'll wait, shallow breath puffing, till the sun rolls around from the side, if it comes over today. I could be ice or snow you know, or frost but as it is, I'm just slightly less warm than you.
