spaces tightly recede – samantha lucero

i’m unhurt here; deeply wrapped inside this ill-starred cell.

chaste of catching time in its seeping hoards
that worm, or unpolluted by the
lightless nature of breath in my
anemic boat

i can oar inside this fervid pulse where
i’m electrically prolonged
inside that silky wave
the wistful
scene i’ll dream
and dream again

where life unearths
or perhaps, i wince and the spaces
tightly recede

and though i sink into an oily red
womb of her fastenings
i won’t dream of an appalling life
when i hiccup or pirouette my shaping
limbs to arrive at this
eternal return

of what

none outside this narrow pool
can dream or know, i’ll dream;

put me back into that blood
that last drowsy warmth
of my eyes yawned shut
before the first scream.

to sleep and sleep and finally sleep!

  1. This was awesome! Carefully done.
    I haven’t been on Twitter in like 3 months but I wasn’t sure how else to yell about this piece, so I put it on Twitter.
    Next time that I’m feeling placentalmental…

  2. You are sounding more and more like Lady Macbeth. You’re scaring me. Great stuff, Sam…Time for drama (hint).

    put me back into that blood
    that last drowsy warmth
    of my eyes yawned shut
    before the first scream.
