“Predator” ~ Excerpt from Yesterday’s Woman: Reflections of the Passionate Life


She is unknown to you,
this creature — naked, predatory,
clawing through the night’s madness.

She is eclipsed by a thousand
unanswerable questions,
skin shining,
sweat beads making their way
over her many devious dimensions;
criss-crossing rivulets,
tiny jewels that form,
then dissolve into harsh trails
that slither down her back;
you taste their salt on your tongue.
