Shakespeare's Fall


You like the way
I drop my g's
when I read Shakespeare to you
in bed,

the way my r's are soft
as the side of my breast,

and the way I lick my fingertips
before turning the page,

And I . . .

I like the sharp intake of your breath
just before Shakespeare hits the floor.

55 words for my G-Man

Brendan said...

Great explication of how it's always good to give a little tongue when reading Shakespeare out loud. And also when it's a good time to shut his book and open your own one wide. - Brendan

Ah, I should try this... my husband loves Shakespeare. :)

Your poem grabbed my attention from the very start and I love that it isn't what I would consider 'the norm' when I think of Shakespeare.
