Reading Time: 1 minute

gliding over glassy pond and you
are my willowy wind, billowing
upon the rocks and the cicadas
singing their vixen songs around
romance in costumes of night.

Find in this stormy sea, hands
lighting fire from a matchstick
and burning back the stitches of black
knitting wool over as we sit
sidled up against lovers’ hips, legs,
fleshy persistence married up
without delineation into singularity.

The fish are jumping and catching
with their mouths—our love—
making itself food and drink
and the bullfrogs upon their lily pads
echo our choruses in the skiff
upon the water, in the sweater
of our billows and fire.

THE WALLS WE PUT UP IN THE NIGHT (poetry) by: Roman Newell

A collection of poetry written day by day, next to trash cans, in driveways, with whiskey, smoking cigars, while making love and giving and stealing— the way we live.
