person Linzi Garcia, one poem

Linzi Garcia can be found in sunflower fields, cemeteries, and bars across the states. Her solo poetry book entitled Thank You was published by Spartan Press (March, 2018). If you’re lucky, you can even find a haiku of hers in the gumball machine at The Raven Book Store in Lawrence, Kansas or perhaps hidden in a nook in a tree near you.

everything will burn

when i steal a taste of the words
that have yet to leave
his mouth or hands
he pushes the softest “ouch”
into my teeth
and translates every word
thereafter into how he makes love
to me
on the couch
he intends
to burn
