OF ME AND MEN {POETRY BY KWAME DAWES}

When after a week
He is grunting
Startled at the suck
Of my body
At the impossible of his luck
He won’t know
How easily we arrived here
Playing beats in the half light
Won’t know that I have washed these sheets today
And I will again tonight
Won’t know that I ruin love
With the melody of men
Slipping into the soft hunger of my dreams

Won’t know that I can make storms
And quiet them

With just a breath

  1. If you wish to refer to yourself, use the terms ‘this writer’ or ‘the article author’. This methodology of clustering is similar to throwing a rock into a pond, it unfolds from your center, each ripple, or thought moving outward.
