Bordello Blues. Her stiletto heeled strut, leaning from side to side as she approached center stage. Twisting and gyrating, her body going through the motions. Viewing the distance in her eyes, it was easy to tell that her thoughts were far, far away tonight. Hounded applause gripped the stage with sweaty hands and folded currency—all […]

Willow trees dripping their branches onto the pond. Touching at the water’s edge. Crowned by dense foliage. Expressed in leaves of vibrant green. Two in a boat. The surface peaceful, from the stroke. Monet in appearance. The air still. The picture bug free. The edges indistinguishably fuzzy. by malakhai jones img src: http://picturesoftrees.org/large/96/Weeping-Willows-Tree-Pictures-6.jpg

Ever there, In the low hum of the walls of my soul Like a Negro spiritual Squinting under the heat of a hot-cotton Sun My hope and exhaustion Carried along in the same message. So tired Just so tired Jus’ wanna lay down …lay down But now is not the time The ancestor spoke with […]

Tasting it on the air. Smelling it on the wind. I see it in her eyes. Escaping from her skin. Filling me up. Red rising level. Her neckline flush. Her hair disheveled. Her hand glides. The bloodlust overtaking me. I close my eyes. The scent saturating the olfactory. Holding me in position. I hear the […]

Blue and Purple meeting at the fingertips. Interlaced as Misty Blue yields to Purple undercurrents. A deep pull on Purple, Fills the lungs, Into the bloodstream and to the brain. The ghost afloat, Arms outstretched. Purple darkness surrounds. A slow and soothing exhale on Purple Woos. Air currents flow past the body. Purple corpuscles trail […]

The Shade of night slowly creeps down the pane of dusk’s horizon. It’s pink membrane permeated by black ink. The air tumbles over the sill, onto the floor, starry and warm, providing lift. Spiraling. Floating. Up on the currents. Moving further out. I’m free! I’m free. I’m… free… by malakhai jones img src:  http://41.media.tumblr.com/75b3903f839edea78aeb41e22fb23830/tumblr_mxi334EiwW1rzpqxxo1_1280.jpg

Close your eyes and imagine me. See my spoken words with your aggressive flirt. Keeping pace with my rhythm, Just imagine me. Let my song sing to your soul So deep under the rhythmic caresses, Moving across the surface. Tasting the salty sweetness of your arch. Just close your eyes. Imagine the squint in the […]

One day I’ll buy a home on the ocean and super-size my happiness.  Gate it and recess it from the public while listening to the richness of the rain on my million-dollar roof. by malakhai jones img src http://www.snappypixels.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/ocean-balcony-view-3.jpg

A grey suit. Black shoes. A grey skirt and grey jacket. Looped arm in arm. Casual strides make hard bottom footfalls against the hard grey of the walkway. The sediment of snowfall drifts under lamp post light.  Empty cars line the cobblestone street with it reaching around the corner and into the black.  The track marked […]

Drowning her senses with energies she hadn’t recently had the pleasure of visiting, Parisian rains continued to pour.  Raindrops, following one another in the downpour, formed wet fingerprints against the skylight. A semblance of near suffocation. Freezing for an instant to decay into the meeting of two seas. Their borders were indistinguishable. She tastes his […]
