POETRY: EMILY AS ONLY IF SOMETHING SPECIFIC HAPPENS – Darren C. Demaree

Emily As Only If Something Specific Happens

 
I was wrong about women.
I thought good women were
freshwater women, leading
 
me somewhere brilliant
to leave me somewhere else
& when I first tasted Emily
 
& she tasted like the ocean,
I knew the lapping, that move
-ment was to return me
 
fifty-eight inches further down
the beach each time she chose
to.  I knew.  I knew.  I knew.
