Liquid Braille~

A Poem by NoneOfYourBusiness akaKITTY KUTABAREakaCandyPole

I learned you

each of you

first

in an amniotic world

with a flutter

like an inside kiss from butterfly

 

The first one pressed her hips against my hip bone

a fluid umbilicus

filled with whispering rushes

she said

I will teach you patience

and unconditional love

 

She did . . . .

 

The second one bent her brow against my ribs

her pulse a steady murmur

in a silver artery that ran my belly

she said

I will teach you to trust again

and give you a banquet of childhood

you never had

 

She did . . . .

 

The third one pressed his palm against my abdomen

my eyes dilated

aching for tear ducts

as I read his life through my fingertips

he said

I don't belong to you

but thank you for the haven of your body

I will teach you complete selflessness

 

He did

in liquid Braille . . . .

Wow, this was absolutely extraordinary.

That being said, I'm not entirely sure what this poem is about. Maybe I have to read it again (and again) to understand it, but the prose is beautiful and the thought behind it is beautiful as well. It flows so well and has great sensory imagery.

I loved it.

The ultimate gift of being a woman is the miracle of life that happens within our bodies. This is so touching and beautiful. It seems as if you touched on surrogate mother as well... just wondering. Really beautiful.

The more I read your work, the easier it is to understand the way you almost abstractly reach farther than most for the words to convey what you mean. As always, every piece you write is another masterpiece. Thank you

antithesis ..oxymoron..? liquid braile...hmm...the image you draw could be the inner feeling of the protrutions of the braile text? impressions there but not seen, heard or tasted....? inside kiss from butterfly...quite erotic...
