“Venus Soul” by Ty Granderson Jones

Ty Granderson Jones

(a poem for my wife)

SAINT CUPID
SOARED
BEYOND
THE GATES OF VENUS
FROM THE OTHER SIDE OF HEAVEN,
SPREADING HIS BABY WINGS,
RIDING A
RED CARRIAGE
BEARING TREASURES OF
UNKNOWN TRUST,
CRYSTAL COMMITMENT,
PURPLE MYSTIC DUST,
PARTING
SWEET VANILLA CLOUDS
AND JASMINE DEW
FLOATING
THROUGH
AN OCTOBER SKY
DELIVERING THE SOUL
OF MY CREOLE
ANGEL.
CURLS
SWIRLS
LIPS LIKE PEARLS.
A CARAMEL FELINE
TRANSFORMED INTO
GOD’S ARROW
PIERCING MY HEART
MY SOUL….MY LIFE,
ON THE EVE
OF HIS BABY JESUS DAY
