Best poem I’ve read in a long time

my tongue got stuck to the icicle

when i licked it; and when i

touched the candle flame

my fingers came away red and blistered.

 

this could be a poem about

savage beauty and the danger

inherent in nature.

 

instead it’s about people,

and how they’re always

touching the things that

they shouldn’t.

 

(that girl on the news never invited

that man to touch her.

all i can think about is how

i wish she had had something savage

coursing through her skin.

 

god should have made girls lethal

when he made monsters of men.)

 

(e.h.)

      I’ve been trying to find out as well but the only reference to the poet remains the initials E.H. Sorry I can’t be of more help.
