The Green Girl and the Coffee Bean

Green locks, cloven hoof, desire,

The fields open wide, expansive,

The dancing blades are anchored in the earth,

Rooted, restrained, reaching up to cumulus, cirrus.


A hill covered by millions, green tree

On red hill.  Two watching for food,

Gulping death, reminding me of desire,

And green locks, and fields opened wide.


The blades are withered, like breasts;

Droplets of sweat moisten dry milk ducts.

She was once beautiful, green, vibrant,

But now is rooted, restrained, reaching up to cumulus, cirrus.


They gather near the portal, the temporal,

Desiring to get out;  I peer from the back,

Lain out on work tables, feet aside burgundy and jeans,

And I lean back, wonder, and observe departure.

About ~Drew

I am a survivor of childhood torture. Each day, I put one foot in front of the other, moving forward. To do any less would spell my own destruction. My music/poetry/prose deal with the devastating effect of this kind of abuse on a human being: me. My experiences/thoughts/ideas/misconceptions are exposed here for all to see. Here. I am lain bare, naked, hidden only be the cloak of anonymity.
