Poem#14 – Skin

The prompt today comes from Shanna. The theme is “Pockets”. Although I didn’t incorporate it as a theme, I did manage to mention the word 🙂

You have
a history
a hood
like mine

and there is
a chemistry
between us

but there are the walls
paper thin at most

three degrees of


mine is more
of a worldly thing

my Stradford upon Avon
is just up the street

a shotgun house
from which they used to sell

my verses make fools bleed crimson
that shit that bougainvilleas
dream about

but I have never
even held a gun

yours is ocean and
pockets deep

universities bow
at your feet

I would transfer my affections
to your heart

if only you would accept
these life credits
