Poetry: "electric."

I was going through a notebook that I''ve nearly finished up and came across this poem from just about a year ago exactly. It is exactly what I look for in a poem: it's concise, yet comfortably charismatic. It's important for even a short poem to have some kind of dynamic range. So, here, in all it's glory, is "electric."





is there anything more beautiful

than a woman reading?


the drapes softly undulating

with the room's respiration.


she turns a page --- 

lips pursed in thoughtful anticipation ---


undresses her arms

bringing the open book to eye level


the air still,



and electric.
