Taylor Leigh Ciambra



MT. MONADNOCK

wrapped in white summit mist
we are blind to base world
of boyfriends and girlfriends
the light rain easily washing away
guilt and memory
on this sunless day

disrespectful passion
cracks open my chest
with pleasure
for once I am honest
with what I want from you

on the rocks and lichen
I want my tongue to taste your thoughts
and I want you to know what I’m made of
under the blush of light pink propriety
there are bones that shake for your
clear cut eyes



FROM THE HOUSE IN JUNEAU

a-giant-mess-of-blood-and-sweat

against-bone-and-bruise
dirty-natural-soaked-in-tears
pores-filled-with-passion-
-scars-filled-with-years
we-are-alive-in-a-living-place
breathing-moving
taking-up-space
