Crystal Palace – David Stakes

In Retiro Park
Falling silver under a crystal sky
Summer glints of every Contour on the slide
Gold leaf kisses
Concussion dreams
A kaleidoscope of being

Lips part at a moth’s touch
Red and gold warmth
A leaking heart on sheer thighs
An eye for you and touch of skin on skin
Soaking, light enveloping
The crystals of believing
I drip mercury on all your beauty
Souls encompassed by every fold, every vein
Entrusting the deep warmth of surrendering
The dispersal of love on the dappled floor

In the end
You are holding nothing
Just hints
Hints of everything

About aloudqmu

Aloud is a monthly poetry and spoken word open mic night, and literary magazine. We are based in Glasgow University's Queen Margaret Union, Glasgow, Scotland, UK. Here we wish to publish performance videos from our open mic nights, event updates, and the writing featured in our monthly Aloud Magazine, and some of the writing that didn't quite make the final cut.
