    My question mark of breasts
    slope of hips
    lock of knee
    valley of toes ~

    It has been
    eight days
    and the dog has
    stopped complaining
    the roses have
    begun to swallow
    themselves

    The curtains
    the tile
    the lamp
    the living room couch
    are all diseased
    with your shadow

    Mmmmmmm...

    Couldn't quite figure this out
    but Looks like absence
    in question has me boggled
    a bit but I can feel a diseased
    absence of something ...
    I like poems that make me
    wonder of things and situations
    especially the absence in
    question.
    Thanks poet.

    Neva fear brotha..... just let it boggle you for a while, then you can ask if you'd like to know at that point.....

    The absence in question is just figuratively my way of speaking on the topic of someone's man being gone.....
    melancholy at it's best...a definite somber mood....


    Thanks for the love!
