Kim Addonizio is my absolute favorite modern day poet. She’s got the most beautiful soul and her poetry comes from a very raw place. I was fortunate enough to meet her in Portland, OR many years ago. If you like poetry, even if you don’t, I really suggest you look into her work. So, I’m sharing this one below and I hope you will find some more of her work to enjoy on your own.
First Poem for You
by Kim Addonizio
I like to touch your tattoos in complete
darkness, when I can’t see them. I’m sure of
where they are, know by heart the neat
lines of lightning pulsing just above
your nipple, can find, as if by instinct, the blue
swirls of water on your shoulder where a serpent
twists, facing a dragon. When I pull you
to me, taking you until we’re spent
and quiet on the sheets, I love to kiss
the pictures in your skin. They’ll last until
you’re seared to ashes: whatever persists
or turns to pain between us, they will still
be there. Such permanence is terrifying.
So I touch them in the dark; but touch them, trying.
