Poetry by Brandon Rucker



This body it speaks to me

In the glorious light of day
And under the shroud of night
It soothes

With its secret language
And flicking tongue
It beckons

With its peaks and valleys
And silken skin
It sings

Soul-soaring melodies
Against pulsing rhythms
It dances

To the tide of the ocean
Under the lonesome moon
It taunts

With powers undaunted
Unbridled and sweeping
It conquers

Me in a blaze of passion
With the fervor of love
This body
