Coming Home (An Old Love Story)

a chapbook by Susan Ioannou


Could she forget that precipice
—his voice—and how he broke inside her ear,
drew her breathless down the darkened slope,
rolled her open in the moon’s full light?
The old cool-glass reserve impossible
after. No he kissed. I can’t he rocked
brain and thighs awake to tides that she
never had known, but drowned her will within
