good poetry

good poetry makes my skin prickle--sometimes a slow build like falling in love, sometimes all of a sudden, like an orgasm.

good poetry makes my skin prickle--like an icy, loving hand caressing an inch from my skin.

good poetry makes my skin prickle--"not with a bang but a whimper," "like I've got diamonds at the meeting of my thighs," "my soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning, more than watchmen for the morning."

good poetry makes my skin prickle--like the Holy Spirit is about, making trouble and laughing.

good poetry makes my skin prickle--like all the creation's truth is in those few words.
