New poems by Tempest Brew


Emerald Lightning


the summer shimmer

the dark gloves

the glow of our candles


all made the storm

turn a brighter spectrum

disturbing our later sleep


reminding us of years

ago when we were young.



a line, (a blue one)


Corset Queen


she's pulled tight

and all bundled

head a stack on body

body a slender rail

feet a moving blister.



a line, (a blue one)




thank you, Humbert,

for teaching us how not

to love,


not furtively in other

rooms and secret,

quiet desperation,


but honest, open, out

in the air, real love.



a line, (a blue one)




she's a pile of bones

stretched over a body

that's too big for her

age, hair a tangle,

grin a disaster and it's

easy to see why she

pushes on others




a line, (a blue one)
