Mischief Cafe 

I took part in the Mischief CafĂ©: Seattle, WA with author and founder of T.S. Poetry Press, L.L. Barkat, hosted by Jody Collins.  Check out Tweetspeak for more about this great idea that Laura has taken on the road to inspire poetry and connection.

It’s subtle
how it calls,
how the road
yields to the curve
of your palm,

upon your tongue,
your palate quivering
with diesel and dust
as if cigar smoke, sex, Bordeaux.

By day,
the sun toasty,
by night,
the stars crisp,
like hints of a lover’s kiss
fresh upon your skin,

soul entwined
with the highway wind,
a liberative mix,
as the slivered moon
tends to the
cumulonimbus clouds
in your mind.

And it’s subtle
how you answer,
how you
yield to the curve
of its palm.
