Poets’ Corner: Our Poet Laureate Brings The Heat For Valentine’s Day
It was standing room only last December at the Telluride Institute’s Talking Gourds Poetry bash and San Miguel Poet Laureate Elissa Dickson did not disappoint her crowd. For the end-of-the-year celebration, she delivered fireworks in the form of her unfiltered words, bringing the house down – and the heat up. It’s more of the same for Valentine’s Day. And why not? Some – no, many – like it hot.
Imagine the possibilities
The sun rises for a reason
Take its invitation and hold it tight to your heart.
I like my body when
Your eyes are on it
Seeing me, seeing you
Come Alive with my
And you touching me, touching we
Slip into one another
Slip into a space lined thick with golden phoenix feathers
Framing your eyes like a sunrise
New to me, new to we
(For the record, Elissa is also adult program director at Telluride’s Wilkinson Public Library, with five stars for the ninth year in a row, easily the raddest in the state.)
