The Erotic Literary Salon – Angel Hogan

I would like to thank all that attended last night’s Salon, what a wonderful event. A dozen plus readers and one Spoken Word by “Mouth”, a magnificent presentation. Angel Hogan our featured presenter for the evening was her spectacular self, truly fine words playing together to create such marvelous poetry.

Angel sent this one particular piece she presented yesterday, welcoming comments and feedback from all attendees and readers of this blog.

Many Distances

The problem with the heart,
a tool of time, is want can never speak.

-Willis Barnstone
And then there is this offer of a mouth

A layering of tongues

Teeth breath, lips, with-with

Barely an idea, a trick

Flickering in the corner of your eye:

Your lover awaits life from your gaze

Your breaker baits a heated barb

Your beloved dies and rises beneath you

Your keeper sinks to your hips

Your warden walks the mighty yard

Your sweetie stays in the strange

Your crush stands in the wind.

Your mistress lifts one aching calf

And bites the tender skin.

Now there are fingers

A layering of flesh,

The almighty touch, a whisper…

Now a flame:

Your lover says your name

Your honey sets the blaze

Your teacher wets your belly

Your partner parts your thighs

Your escort knows your secrets

Your precious lights your skin

Your guide finds you adrift and tangled

then sails you home again.

-Angel Hogan

I also wish to thank Mina Smith-Segal for her lovely watercolors that adorned the Salon last night.
