A Scene I Desire – Kindra M. Austin

Kindra’s work is so stunning 💛 A fresh take on the theme ‘Desire’.



The incandescent radiance

of a midnight living room

breathing heavily scented smoke…

sandalwood and roses with tobacco undertones,



She’s been thrown against the wall; I watch her shadow

bend ‘round corners, taking the form of a cave dwelling spider.


Elvis sings Suspicious Minds; and my mama


they can’t go on together,

so she rearranges furniture,

as is her wont to rid his image.


I’m caught lurking in the hallway,

and she smiles.


She smiles.


A scene I desire to find again.
