Diane Dehler, "Petal"


December 1, 2013 at 6:35pm
Opulent lips and red blood.
Microscopic details through a bright lens of moonlight.
Peering through a ghostly obelisk your reflection.
History, desire still warm

You said that you were coming.
A night naked of black wings.
Kiss prints left up and down milky skin an interior map.
When I first called out your name, Petal…
Beginning of the world.
