draw(ing) game

when we were children
my sister & I played
spelling games
on our backs,
fingertip alphabets
pressing questions into skin

then, we had winners
& losers

now, you & I
play a different game;
my touch scribes,
strokes the figures of seduction
on your skin

& my question
has only one answer
breathed in your yes

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?
