Poetry Hour: The Space Between

The Space Between Courtney Dercqu 2

If I could impress upon you anything,

with sincerity or not,

it’d be my wish for you to touch me in my sweetest place

The Space Between Courtney Dercqu 2Oh, how I hope you don’t resist!

It’s the space between my breasts

the space that’s hard and filled with bone

the space between where my heart is its own.

Oh, I wish you were capable of feeling!

The anguish that lives in the space between.

The ample spot that’s full of flesh and bone and muscle

the very birthplace of my weakness

and the fear that lives within.
