Pause, by .Chitrita

my lips had none of the finesse
of smooth jazz
or electric guitar,
instead, it had all the pizzazz
of slipping record
and sideway stream rocket ships

there, there
in the heat of liftoff
choking on smoke
I felt myself unsticking,
unfurling like hair underwater
slowly, softly, untangled

petals and jellyfish
so easily bruise

your fingers tapped beat into bone
ribcage falling open

it was so warm
then drafty

One thought on “Pause, by .Chitrita

  1. First off I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Appreciate it!
