An Orange Coat – A Poem

 

An Orange Coat

Orange coat in the morning
chasing
spiraling
pockets of air.
Trouble smothered in a letter
opened on
the
staircase
misunderstanding references.

We reveled as
the
mundane
was contaminated
peaceful monotony
decayed.

In a darkened room you laid
naked
covers draped
over your head
feet propped by pillows
seams of
golden
thread.

My right leg callowed
between your
thighs.
In the closet
an orange
coat
hung the lusts
of our youth.

Our laughter
fragilely collided against
each
other.
Pierced by nails
into the floorboards
our blood
mingled and seeped.

We partitioned our hours
attempting
to cling onto
paradise.

Glaring your eyes
held me.
Images swept up
from the letter
fell
through
the railing and
broke discourse.

The belt
of an orange coat
swathed
your waist.
The
morning
bloomed effortlessly
under a sun
reddened
by the clouds.
