Palpitations (7/30)


The prompt for day seven over at NaPoWriMo was to write a tritina. The tritina is a shorter cousin to the sestina, involving three, three-line stanzas, and a final concluding line. Three “end words” are used to conclude the lines of each stanza, in a set pattern of ABC, CAB, BCA, and all three end words appear together in the final line.



We touch each other with eager hands
skin tattooed with sighs and dreams,
sunrises birthing inside our chest.

Our memories locked inside a chest,
time moves like a clock with no hands;
days feeling like unspoken dreams.

The moon makes love to our dreams,
uncaging the beating inside our chest
sweat and stickiness drowns hands.

Hands live out dreams; chest learns a new rhythm.
