Press your thumbs into

The small of my back, brand me

With vortex kisses


Puckish prints preserved

On glass, fossils spiraling

On a silver lake


Cauterized fingers

Leave no trace of existence

A thief’s artful touch


Your hands wrap around

My heart – imitation ribs,

Fusing prints in blood


Narcissus’ fingers

Flirt with the lake’s reflection

Bluffing DNA


I had negative time to write today geez and I am sure it shows! Stressful day

Submission for

Haiku Heights
