Free solo

Free solo

Your kisses are claws
tiny crabs
clinging to my toes
tingling my nose
sneezing starfishes

the slow rock climber
ascending the dawn wall
polished by sun
slopering and then crimping
on the scratches
left by your soft claws



*A crimp and a sloper are grip and hold used in climbing.
