Rubbing English

braver than leaning into scented thorns

of a sole fluorescent rose

learning the language of a man

harrows  harps  hovers

in a woman’s worry to be fresh

soiled & supple enough

to absorb the speak of eyes

the error of voice

between grape-skinned lips

the error of voice

to absorb the speak of eyes

soiled & supple enough

in a woman’s worry to be fresh

hovers   harps   harrows

leaning into thorns of a man

a sole fluorescent rose.

– Melanie Henderson
