100 Splendid Words For the Loneliness Without YouLorna Dee Cervantes
Splendid, you are, in your lair. Splendid in your hair, the fuzz cut and fur there. Splendid, you are, between bare thighs, the rise under the ridge, that splendid fig. You were such a figment of my intent, My Fish, My Snare, My One that's Not Away — though I dare to call you there; splendid in your full extension; my own sure cure for love- soldiering, sole hunting in valleys of loneliness, rallying through songs and flowers (not as splendid as you.) Splendid in your honesty of a nail, truthful as bark. Love, the splendid cat splay of you. Basking.
