anything for a good time

the crucifix dangling in that crevice / guarding the gateway / at the rendezvous of his collarbones / when pressed just right / revealed a shiny little switchblade / protruding from the feet of Christ / and when he dared me / to trace my tongue along its length / I thought heaven help me /  but anything for a good time

  1. Your poems never cease to slink their way from my mind to my stomach and form a reaction. I really like this one – the imagery! The idea, for me, that to hang on the cliff side of safety is both dangerous and exhilarating.

    One day I will have to pick your mind about these poems of yours.

    1. I am devilishly delighted by this feedback. I had a feeling you’d like this piece. It was inspired by an actual experience of mine…. but it’s definitely a reflection on the idea of toying with pleasure/pain and the lengths we go to indulging ourselves and others.
