Marianna [Poem] by Noel Negele

Three Poems by Bill Wolak

The Helplessness of Orgasm  From the excited delirium  of contorted flesh, arises the sudden  weightlessness  of an embrace.  Out of the trembling  helplessness of orgasm, emerges the intimate  stillness of honey.  Harder  When your naked body  quivers out of control, pale as the afterimage of a lightning flash, whisper into a flushed ear with a murmured sigh harder, harder, harder.  Then speak only  with the pressure of your thighs.  Flashing  Flashing your breasts so that only  I could see quick as  the middle  of a dream all the open  buttonholes of your blouse are still smiling.
