i don’t mind
a tease of tied
stilled in silk
or twined cotton rope

i am ripe for it

& blind me too
so I don’t know
where mouth
or fingers
will raise feeling next

the tender curve
beneath breasts

or traced
in the arc of a hip

trailing & tasting

surrender in
my neck stretching yes

***Who would have thought a presidential debate gaffe would lead me here?    Not I…Kind of like where the thought led me tonight, but I was SO not thinking of Mitt when I cooked this up.  Reminded me of this song.

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?

    I didn’t watch the town hall debate and I’ve been avoiding the reportage so I wouldn’t have gotten it if you hadn’t added that postscript. Reading it cold it just made me go something like “OMG Really??? Really!!! Very sensual, in a restrained kind of way. (pun intended!)

  2. Rhonda says:

    Ok…I’m confused. I watched the debate, came no where NEAR this feeling! What is it with you? This is a very sensual poem, and relating it to the debate baffles me. I see and feel this…to my core. Why?

  3. George Ellington says:

    Beautifully evocative, Susan. I had no idea while reading it that something so comical had inspired it. I just thought it was warmly sensual.

  4. Trent Lewin says:

    That was seriously hot.

    wow that opened my eyes wide this morning very sensual

  6. kinda poem that i like to find, unbinds my mind, unwinds things with its teasing wings and whispers …this must go to my binder!

    • I had to play with the winding and the binding–it was an irresistible pull, a tease, a suggestion I just couldn’t let go of. I much prefer the idea of a binder packed with suggestive poetry, rather than full of women.

    i didn’t realize that this bondage was going to be become tied to a politics, but some relationships are just that and that is not good bondage…haha.

    It was just a matter of time, har! So long as there is no Mitt in leather.

  10. Wow, Susan, and this from a presidential debate? It was that hot then. Because this is piping hot! 🙂
