Gossiping with Frog-Cups

I wanted to feel you
inside out, while I peeled my skin
off your thorned bones.

I wanted to speak
your many names into the wind;
chant to all, “He’s mine!” Unwanted,
and as disposable as the twists
binding a reanimated heart to life, but mine.

Uncanny… wants
younger than the cruellest month
taste of ancient on my tongue,
when all I want is for birdsong
to bedeck the wind
(from moon till sun),
while I gossip with frog-cups.

This Poem Has a Mission

I had specific reasons for joining the poetic crowd that has been writing 30 poems for the cruellest month during last few years. When friends showed interest in the project, my general objective had to be modified… But my personal motives remain the same. I will share a bit about my own poetic mission (or what I thought it was) through the poem I will write for this prompt. And you, my Wicked Luvs, get to do the same.

For day 29 of NaPoWriMo with Magaly Guerrero 2015, In three stanzas, detail what (if anything) you wish to accomplish with the poems you wrote this month, or with poetry writing in general.

(This image has absolutely nothing to do with this prompt, or maybe it does since the fairy looks so thoughtful and all… Anyhoo, I’ve never needed a reason to show my Shelle’s work. So there!)
