Rough Notes - Tongue in Cheek


A few months back  The Yellerzine had a submission for their Tongue-in-Cheek Issue. The theme being tongue-in-cheek. Here's my thinking process, (mistakes and all) rough notes and then the final poem.












Final piece

You Have 
a Silver Tongue
and you 
have memories
that float
onto my cheeks
like snowflakes.

You crawl
into my dreams
where
we cat curl
cheek
by jowl.

The night
forms
on the tip
of your tongue
as the radiator
whinnies.
