‘Four Poems’ by Dale Brett

Grecia, Greek

IMMACULATE

Ghost-coloured
teardrops have congealed.

Every external globule has become
hardened, distorted.

Twin orbs shot-through and
sugar-glowing.

Your eyes, immaculate.

CRUSHING

Paw at the entrance of
my translucent being.

Your contemplative eyes
shadow-fucked with ardour.

Heavy grandfeathered
lips tarnished with sweat-ridden
bullets.

Inner emotions laced with promise locked
down and kissed-away.

Any remaining common courtesies
buried and blind-sided.

Hopes of shimmering intimacy
vehemently soul-crushed.

GELATINOUS

Asterism irises align.

Star-shaped splotches
orb-plastered in trans-sclera
illumination.

Rose-quartz facets
flake skyyyward and
peripheral.

Her eyes drowned in
happiness,
still

deeply wounded.

SLEEPLESS

Tenuous dreams float
hollow like fish balls.

Mind slide migration meets an
infinitely

blank state.

Talking logos reveal:
digital secrets of
a hush-licker.

Snacking on sweet nubile legs
& never-deleting

my only mistake.
