Random Poem:

Brazilian Sensuality
zebrastripes

short burst of the bongo drum
 1
as my ears
 2
and the thickness of the air
 3
startle me awake
 4
earthen jars and tepid water in my nose
 5
the blur becomes sharp  
 6
the darkness a hazed yellow
 7
lush greens and bamboo browns
 8
the rythym of the morning song
 9
enunciated quacks of a toucan
 10
hollow tubes of wood smashing together
 11
a roll
 12
a twitch
 13
a roll
 14
a stretch
 15
the soft and dry and smooth clay
 16
like an old baseball diamond
 17
half covered in grass
 18
dances with my favorite sense
 19
a very new but familiar world
 20
just blossomed in my head
 21
the first thing about this place that I remember
 22
is that few real men
 23
survive a
 24
BOA being wrapped around their neck
 25
