Build a Bridge: Prose for a Pose Series

May 29, 2017


Does my conscious mind deceive me? Am I awake or still dreaming?

My thoughts are clouded, and so desperately muddled with lust and inspiration.

Give me your open mind, and feel me sprawled out upon thee.

     Bruised, juicy
     None the wiser
     Do as you please
     Not to mutter a sound
     The floor creeks
     A cold chill
     Trotting on your wood
     Flat feet, and
