Erika Kulnys CD Release


To reinvent a lover, erase fingerprints, lines
in a palm; whether she climbs trees or throbs

her clit on your knee. Paint over peeling
wallpaper in a rented room:

lime green stains, cheap roses. Open your lips,
her legs and let language slip

like a yolk from a broken shell.
Treaties shiver under blankets.

An oath is an icy bridge after drinking.
