Artifacts on Display – Poem by Rosalee Thompson

Banana Envy by Gordon Purkis

The summer
I had an eighteen year old lover
who tried to go through my bedroom mirror
I was forty

*
His mouth was a raspberry fish
He tasted like jawbreaker red
Boy tongue licking the glass

*
Made from forever
spilling like hot August
star rose petals can’t
break

*
The next today
who waits for the beautiful you
