Lilac Wino Reprise (37)

Another poem by Brian…

Lilac Wino Reprise

Purple petals pressed,
fingerprints on flesh. Maps
places I’ve never been
I won’t forget
how you left.
A breath-
the body of the night.
Pray restraint.
Taunted by the hunger
to be haunted.
howl for the healing
howl for the hurt
I am ruined.
Ripe for redemption
restored to burn
clarity in cloud
a memory ringing out
