    No way! We were both writing incense-shaped poems at exactly the same time. 🙂 I promise I didn’t copy you!

    Amen to that. But at least it’s the fun kind of madness (presumably).

    Aside from the ending, I think “loosen the locks” is my favorites. LOVE hair-flow imagery. And nice double-play with chained wrists or bindings of other kinds … being locked up by restraints in assorted shades and scents.

  3. sculpt your serenity in the opium smoke…. what a powerful image, then for you and Shawna to be writing alike hmmmmm. gives one pause

    Oh, I love the projective verse you chose for this one. Really cool

Some of what I write is true, some is fiction; most is merely possibility.
