Granules

GRANULES by Pen of the Damned’s Nina D’Arcangela

Soft granules shift with each step as I walk the sandy strip. They ease between my toes, slide over my sandaled feet; leave a rim of grit around each nail-bed. A favored place, this swing. During the day, it basks in the full cast of sun’s light; at night, it hides in the coolness of evening’s deepest shadow. A place to laugh, to steal a kiss, perhaps a first touch… Hallowed ground made sacred by whispered promises broken only by those foolish enough to make them.

mercy killing

do you remember that day you shushed me?
silk finger on my lips stilling

caught them, dabbed
tears from my eyes, stole the
