Random Poem:

small birth
jpmhawk

I’ve been accosted for picking
 1
the unripe fruit but I don’t have long
 2
I fear or rather realize
 3
mornings waking with young love
 4
is as if small birth occurs
 5
and the new day bit more anew
 6
no promises are made
 7
especially to myself as evidenced
 8
by the lack of needed tears
 9
Hendrix wrote of woman as rainbow
 10
Young, as well, as hurricane
 11
I fear my personal metaphor
 12
however much preferred over simile
 13
rather be than be like
 14
or as
 15
the still firm peach I bring
 16
to my mouth and taste and bite into
 17
never breaking the skin
 18
