Brazenhead Poetry: December 11th, 2017

December 29, 2017


Written & Read by Dan Chung


good at fulfilling

needs but do they fulfill you?

options as duties


separation's ruse:

tender sweetness to return

home to our us-ness


time apart relished

precious precursor to join

reunited joy


jealousy: a fear

how can you lose what's not yours?

possess paradox


desire and loss

aversion to discomfort

risk all to gain all


trying is futile

cannot keep together what

doesn't want to stay


allow yourself truth

courage sprouts in that plowed field

tilled by acceptance


feel you are worthy

of love freedom happiness

despite what you think


Shadow Love

Written & Read by Rebecca Geiger

Come swim with me.
Under the full moon,
Under the bright stars above. 
I love you.
Your hands on mine,
Your strong back over me.
I will draw you, then everyone will see
Your naked beauty.
Only now I see you, now I don’t
So quiet, like the wind, 
You’re a whisper
Or white, a ghost
Only don’t go
Stay with me.
