Two Poems by Marie C Lecrivain


The soul, fortunately, has an interpreter -- often an unconscious, but still a truthful interpreter -- in the eye. - Charlotte Bronte

thursday morning


rebirth yourself

on my living room floor

foetal gestures

shed origins of sin

not made on your behalf


you've found the muse

behind the succubus


the siren

in the muse


your passivity unnerves me

as clumsy hands sweep aside

your tattered caul

of lyric and poetry

and you shiver



and with one evocative question






Mare Australe


This is where I come

when I don’t want

to remember who you are,

or what you did to me.


This is where I find

the cold heart that exists

beneath your alabaster flesh,

the precise icy wind that

evokes your magic touch

and awakens priapic intent.


And here is where I slumber

when the madness threatens

to engulf me, the calmness

of your cool arms

grants me the only peace

I’ve ever known.
