One Shot Wednesday 1/5/11


I want to tear into

your flesh

and rip out parts

of me.

And I will curl

inside your body

4th rib on the right—


you’ll forget me

until I bloom


your body

ready to be plucked

and sucked dry—

to burst

into bloom again.



Check out One Shot Wednesday There are some amazing poets there!



  1. Colum Said:

    Whoa… 🙂

  2. randallweiss Said:

    Great metaphor.

  3. Chris G. Said:

    Interesting. A metaphor that could be applied to several things…ideas, love and relationships…striking, bloody piece that really grips at your attention right off the bat – and doesn’t let go. Here’s hoping for the bloom – keep up the good writing!

    • Judy Black Said:

      Thanks so much! I tried to keep it open that it could be taken about different concepts.

  4. Eric Said:

    Owch! Right in the ribs! (LOL!) Nice piece, Judy!

  5. victoria Said:

    Interesting structure – short and powerful

    • Judy Black Said:

      Thanks, it actually started in an entirely different structure, longer lines, then moved to a more visual shape where it curved into an ‘S’ shape and now it has settled into the current form.

    tight – strong – passionate!
