Memoir

“Love is forever, lust is for the moment…got a moment?” – Michael Gorman

“Too much of a good thing can be wonderful…” – Mae West

Memoir

You shall be

My pillow book

My brush

Will record

Each story

We create

Slowly

I master

Every pore

Your flesh

Will sing

With the

Tears, lust

And laughter

Shared

Exclamation points,

Ellipsis

I shall

Punctuate you

With care

Overlooking

Naught

Each mark

I leave

Every stroke

I make

Indelible

Bisous,

Léa

    1. You would really enjoy meeting “gorman” he is an “adopted” brother, poet, author and character! The quote is the final line in one of his poems.

    1. Thank you so much Christine. A Pillow Book is such a delicate thing and not being Asian, I wanted to capture that. 🙂
