In the shower, to love

Eastern Lover
by Deborah Wong

I bribe the concierge
They gave me the room
that
You’ve spent a night in
The minute I step in
To the bathroom
I strip, down to the very last
The tub could not accommodate me
I turn the shower
On
Heaven befall
Me in drenching
Absolutely suffocating You!
Forming like water of nitrogen
Vacuum-packed inside

Cleansing me
Inside out
Eerie
Cold
Housing lust
Scrimmage of insatiability
I lean against the ceramic wall
Limbs & legs hanging
Tired –
Impotent
Licking wild fire
Careful not to breach
Your lips and fingertips
Enduring, towards & until when –

Larva – answering prayers,
The spaces between us

Oi ! I’m Jeremiah Walton. For the past ~3 years I’ve been bopping around the U.S. between hitchhiking + rubber tramping, running traveling bookstore Books & Shovels + indie publisher Nostrovia! Press. My focus is in-person distribution at open mics + features + busking. Word of mouth is a fulfilling & feels to be a more intimate promotional process. I’ve featured at the NYC Poetry Festival + San Francisco Lit Crawl + Snoetry Cleveland + Beast Crawl Oakland + This Lil Lit Fest + street corners across the country. There’s a handful of my books floating around the country, but most recently is “From Here Til Utopia” (Ghost City Press). Raccoons + coyotes are my companions. Hope you dig the poems, much love, thank you❤
