Modern Love Poems for Him

My Crush on Hemmingway

My Crush on Hemmingway - love poems for him

You wash over me
Your crisp, uncluttered words
Wetting my face, my lips.
Fountains of oasis water
Running rivers over my thirsty breasts
Finding my navel, my sterile hips
Sighing streams
Evaporate to dry desert dust
As they reach my fettered feet
And I can never ever hope to follow you
Except to the oceans of your retreat
