I Am An Orchid

I Am An Orchid

A girl told me, so it must be true

And I told her she was a peach

I said, “When I look at you

I think of how a man will preach

until he is black and blue
and never know the half of who
God is”, and she said, “Teach

me the way that I may eschew

all others, and preferring you

above them…” just then I reach

her lips with mine, and two

and two is one and each is each

and we, no longer on the beach

with juice and petals slipping through

our hair and hands, are lost to view.

I like this one best so far. Do you ever read your poetry in poetry slams, or at readings, etc?
