The Country Of Marriage
by Wendell Berry

I.

I dream of you walking at night along the streams
of the country of my birth, warm blooms and the nightsongs
of birds opening around you as you walk.
You are holding in your body the dark seed of my sleep.

II.

This comes after silence. Was it something I said

Song Of The Open Road
by Walt Whitman

AFOOT and light-hearted, I take to the open road,
Healthy, free, the world before me,
The long brown path before me, leading wherever I choose.

Henceforth I ask not good-fortune--I myself am good fortune;
Henceforth I whimper no more, postpone no more, need nothing,
Strong and content, I travel the open road.

The earth--that is sufficient;
I do not want the constellations any nearer;

Circe
by Augusta Davies Webster

The sun drops luridly into the west;
darkness has raised her arms to draw him down
before the time, not waiting as of wont
till he has come to her behind the sea;
and the smooth waves grow sullen in the gloom
and wear their threatening purple; more and more
the plain of waters sways and seems to rise
convexly from its level of the shores;
and low dull thunder rolls along the beach:
there will be storm at last, storm, glorious storm.

Tired
by Augusta Davies Webster

No not to-night, dear child; I cannot go;
I'm busy, tired; they knew I should not come;
you do not need me there. Dear, be content,
and take your pleasure; you shall tell me of it.
There, go to don your miracles of gauze,
and come and show yourself a great pink cloud.

So, she has gone with half a discontent;
but it will die before her curls are shaped,
and she'll go forth intent on being pleased,

Home
by Rupert Brooke

I came back late and tired last night
Into my little room,
To the long chair and the firelight
And comfortable gloom.

But as I entered softly in
I saw a woman there,
The line of neck and cheek and chin,
The darkness of her hair,
The form of one I did not know

Versace on the Floor. January 21st, 2024.
by Gilligan Snolepart

I want to know the salty smell of your sweat
As my kisses begin their descent between your shoulders

I want to see the apprehension of judgement fade from your eyes as your dress slides off
And desire washes self-consciousness away, so much so that you stop caring and just want me to take you

I want to play hide and seek with your lingerie, zip after strap
Until the last hook of your bra surrenders and there’s only skin left

I want to know what your breath sounds like when it gets heavier

Draconic Soul
by Allison Anderson

In the crucible of life, where shadows dance,
A tale unfolds of strength, of second chance.
In the hearts of women, where dragons reside,
A story untold, in the depths they confide.
Bearing scars unseen, etched in the soul,
Warriors emerge, making brokenness whole.
Through the tempest of trauma, they find their flight,
Silent battles waged in the stillness of night.
A dragon's soul within, fierce and bold,
Yet fragile whispers of stories untold.

A woman/Жінка (Ukrainian)
by Halyna Myroslava

Твого тепла падучий п’янко квіт,
Розводить вуст солоні небозводи.
І вигнута півмісяцем у ритм,
Ти – первісна.
І витончена в подих
Тонким звиванням талії, плечей,
колоссям пальців,
Грацією, блиском.
У танці часу ти – земна колиска
Й опора вічності розхитаних очей.

Existence Of Love
by Ayatullah Nurjati

She dared to harbour feeling her love for a man
And for more than 1 decade the woman has ventured to collect her love for the
man
She began to dare to squirm to express all what she felt
Differences in age, space and time have taught the woman how to be in love
She dared to harbour her love for a man

Now the reality is different, the man already has a companion; the woman still
hopes that the man is indeed her soul mate
Even though it looks odd, it is clear that love can never choose

Venus
by Ayatullah Nurjati

Your breath catches up
Your scent is annoying
If only I wasn't the innocent me I would have crushed your fingers in a worldly
moan
Unfortunately I'm not an angel—instead I'm impressed as the incarnation of
bedbugs
As if I have a passion to transmit the essence of lust
If you're not my lover, I'd better go to mbah shaman to complain or to the sea
it's better
There I found jellyfish, dolphins and their inhabitants
