“SWIFTLY SWIFTLY – VI”

 

 

 

 

SWIFTLY SWIFTLY – VI


Swiftly swiftly
no holding back
urgency declaims
puts claims
on your soul
puts hands on
your neck.

hand over fist
head first
feet first
anyway you like
open wide
open up
swallow.

ready set
to go
on your mark
these marks
make theirs
mark mine before
it’s too late

 

– Diane Sophrin.
