Frida Sculpted Poem From Becca’s Prompt

Been sort of off the writing wagon (doing my usual scribbling around the edges of notebooks saving scraps on my phone stuff) but here is the first proper poem for a while here is Becca’s excellent prompt from Frida Kahlo’s words: http://stirredpoetry.wordpress.com/2014/05/23/found-frida/

 and my sculpted poem from it (I’ve kept the description I gave Becca of it as the first line)

 

mine is all non love expired love dust ex love:

 

frightened at seeing life opened

 

distant, I have wanted to explain, that I can’t return. 

I have forgotten you. the nights. The water. the parting.  your heart. 

 

Everything is untouched. I wish my touch.  

your eyeball is ancient shell. 

 

dress the same one found half-asleep on the dirty sidewalk of some street.

 

your skin, your eyes and your hair. 

You know all, all touch. the nerves, the dust, the cells.  

 

everything experienced in non-glances. 

You felt it, that’s why you let that ship take my eyes.
