duets with other poets – melinda foshat


“…the greater you love the greater you suffer…”

-Lao Tzu


Something Blue

something red


Spattered wine preserves

dregs staining crystal bloody

Indentations of his clutch

palpitations of betrayal


An indenture she shall serve

steely cold spiced with irony


With a canvas for a frock

her pallet a chalice of tears

Behind a bouquet of knot


a still immaculate phoenix burns
