“Couple #11”

Now that I’m back home, I can upload the rest of the couples series I wrote for National Poetry Month. I’m not sure if I should continue taking pictures of the poems, or just scan them into the computer. Which image style do you think is best? Here’s an example of a scanned poem, and here’s an example of a photographed poem. Would love your opinions! Thanks 🙂

Anyway, here’s couple #11–

"Couple #11"  this ain't sand we're stepping on, but pebbles polished stone, our bodies warmed by fires inside  thank you, vodka and pineapples  we hold hands on the brim of perlite sea foam and obsidian waters absorbing the glare from adhd stars  let's reset our dna. mix-match molecules, redo chromosomes. let's fall asleep like brothers do-- slip off your trunks and sink into the warmth with me  - billimarie

“Couple #11”

this ain’t sand
we’re stepping on, but pebbles
polished stone, our bodies warmed
by fires inside

thank you, vodka
and pineapples

we hold hands on the brim
of perlite sea foam
and obsidian waters
absorbing the glare
from adhd stars

let’s reset
our dna. mix-match
molecules, redo chromosomes.
let’s fall asleep
like brothers do–
slip off your trunks and sink
into the warmth with me
