Book Review for Morning After You:

Subterranean Blue Poetry

Volume III Issue VII

The Atlas

Your breasts are small round chapels
where my prayers rise and fall
on a hot celebrated cathedral afternoon
just before the bells on a camel caravan ring
to cross the flat desert of your belly
pause to smell salt
near your original connection to the sea
register a promise
to your solitary prisoner on the embankment
who now waves and stiffens
above your dew filled valley
urge the moon, stars, and sun to return
send light back out into universe
and in a single fitful blast
redraw all the maps born under your skin.
