One Poem by Darrell Coggins

Written in response to this month’s Special Challenge.


Tightrope walking

enfolded in transparent
layers –
and now but two

from the same mother
we shared the same heart

drawn in closer –
I listen for our secrets

sometimes, tender songs
against my fingertips

sometimes, brushed in raw
my feelings traced over
a first draft

between contoured lines
against infinite yellow

moments which hover
close to me –
that press on my skin

so quickly hours
passed by
