Three Poems by Sara Schmidt

Stayed Sentiments

Lips tore at lips in violent bites,
Nicking with bladed boasts in jaguar's kiss
A fervid frenzy of teeth and tongue
In a first and final claim
As the blast struck--


fire hair is tangled rage,
flaming feathers framing soft cheeks--
an ardent visage shadowed with coppery heat.
passion, lust, stinging desire--
waves of all-consuming presence--
burning dominion,
biting grace--
all encased within
florid filaments of red.


Crumpled pixie stix
Strewn across battered notebooks
Spill bits of crystal madness
Onto x = y, squared
She nearly inhales it as,
With a last scrawl of
Why Caddy is Faulkner's
Heart's darling--
Doubling the period with a
Dark graphite flourish--
She spies the glow
Of a sugar high sunrise
Just beyond the taffy wrappers
And coke bottles
