Our Separate Beds

I am oft in awe
While in your bed
The comfort that I allow
   myself to experience
As I lie beneath the sheets
she picked out.

April is poetry month - long live Al Purdy!

International Women's Day







To Admit

So, she paints her face white
Looks deep in the mirror
To see if there is
anything there

"Am I worthy?"
"I am afraid."

She blesses herself
To prove she is clean
Then drinks back the wine
and takes the bread
She finally admits
who she is

A mystery
