Luscious Literature

I love coming across new books of erotic poetry. Most of the stuff I’ve found lately isn’t necessarily “new”, but it’s new to me. This anthology of contemporary erotic poems is entitled Passionate Hearts, and its got some really sexy stuff inside. It’s edited by Wendy Maltz, who is an internationally known author, speaker and sex therapist. She also runs the website HealthySex.com.

Here is an excerpt of a poem from the book called All Day At Work:

All day at work
I carry the scent of you
I touch my fingers to my lips.
I remember this morning
how your lips parted
as though there was some secret
you had been holding, were finally ready to share.

Dark Eros: Black Erotic Writing has long been one of my favorite anthologies of erotic poetry. When I first picked up this book, some ten years ago, I was impressed and inspired to see all of these writers of color featured together in one book.

 

From the poem: Cherry Blessings by JZB

She loves sensuously
With mouth, tongue, and tears.
Warm jasmine oils, candlelight, and bubble baths.

She loves with her whole heart.
With blackberry preserves his mother made.
Beet juice. And Sorghum molasses from home
which make their even sweeter bodies
melt into their oneness.

She loves innocently.
With the energy that always leads the sun
back to the east and allows the child
to love even in death.
