Stirring : A Literary Collection

Sharon Kourous


There's nothing more boring I think
than watching those spider-fine
cracks in the ceiling thin out and change

and I almost tell you but don't,
how they sometimes look like a city map
of Athens, say, or Rome where a stranger
touches me in the subway,

and sometimes they are brambles
surrounding the castle where I sleep inviolate.
Inviolate.  I like that word.

Maybe we should paint I think.
A color palette appears above your shoulder
I almost mention it but don't.
