empty mouths

empty mouths

A Poem by Madeline Capo

An interesting heart once told me: “I prefer to kiss without emotion”


So when I was caught in the action of desire

I wondered what it was


I can only describe it as:


Strong bones covered in soft freckled skin

Fingers hungrily touching, massaging, circling

Like kneading dough

Or making pottery


I only look back on it as:


Hands everywhere

Hair everywhere

Four contrasting green eyes

Closed the whole time


I only felt it as:


Pleasure crippling thoughts

Pleasure transcending time

A whole body turning noodle limp when it dissipates


I only internalized it as:


A concluding feeling of some sort of emptiness

that mirrored my apparent



Only, one thing I still don’t know:


How and why the steady beat pounds in my aching head wondering,

“no emotion” and our legs weaved tightly together

under the cotton

somehow made me feel

so whole
