And The Record Skipped

(Close-up of unidentified Rothko)

Intimacy lives
in that band 
of skin

above a man's


beneath the
draw of his
barber's blade
Where Summer's
burn slides

into a white
Winter bed

And in the passage,
a woman's Fall


the walking man said...

Sarah you have just made me want to cut two feet off my hair and get a shave. Good thing I will come to my senses before the barber opens.

Charles Gramlich said...

Very sexy!

Sarah Hina said...

Mark, go nuts. That's an order, sir.

Charles, good thing I went with this one and not an ode to my fall allergies, then.

Vesper said...

So simple and so erotic...
Love it, Sarah! Especially And in the passage,/a woman's Fall

Sarah Hina said...

Vesper, thank you! I was determined to use "Fall" instead of "Autumn" in a poem, and thought this offered another angle. :)
