Random Poem:

lead me to the rocks, quake my spine

piano key hands grace these covers
crease my bind, fingertip pages.
'i want to map you,' her seas become sirens
whisping my feet
i bring out my captain hook
you are now baited.
flipping through my chapters, your shirt
e   t   n   l  d
  n  a   g   e
my pages are ripped out
i spotted you from across the room,
now you have me.
rip me from the wall,
let's break this building down
crumbling on forcefields-
be my Wonderwoman.
i'll be your suit.
