No Easy Bake


It’s rarely ever simple for
men or women, even as
they lie entwined in bed.
Sharing their lives and secrets.
There’s always the flickering
of the night light,
stars catching flame overhead.
What is it that lovers need
to love endlessly, a flight map
of scars, the coordinates to
Neverland? What if
the compass is broken?
Can we draw another map.
In the morning we’ll venture
out beyond eggs and grits
to the edge of the moon
where it might be possible
for us to hold on or let go.

  1. I’m sorry, Tosha. But when you said “grits” i swooned and passed out.

    You know exactly which southern strings in my heart to pluck, don’t you?

    It’s beautiful, Poetess. xxx

      1. Sounds good. Is there any specific way to prepare? I would guess pulling a post or two and talking about them and myself? I am looking forward to it and want to have a good showing:)

      2. Yes, be prepared to read a few of your poem. We’ll ask you about your background and how you started writing.. What’s your writing process like? What authors inspire you? Stuff like that.
