HEAT
by Dominique Garay

My hand is tan
all th way through winter
my blood is warm
and that includes my heart

the winds are cold
and so are people
but I will remain warm

and I will warm others
like my grandmother's covers
the ones in patches

DAGGER
by Dominique Garay


you
are a bottle of stars exploding
you are Red
you are
a river divine
you are the cool blue in the middle
the angels
sparkle
the devils
grin
the black
in the latex
and the goose bumps
on skin
you are
the driven snow
and you are
the wicked sin
you are all these things
that I want to be in
