Yareah Magazine is very proud to present ‘Under the Same Moon’, a very special collection of poems written by James Goertel
Speak Your Name from James Goertel’s new poetry collection, Under The Same Moon, is about the universal language of love and how the mere act of saying a lover’s name becomes a state of emotion, a new vocabulary for our feelings.
From the Ashes Of from James Goertel’s new poetry collection, Under The Same Moon, contemplates how the use of words, such as in poetry, can can reinforce love or love coming to an end and how powerfully they effect emotions on either side of that spectrum.
SPEAK YOUR NAME
peppered with the air of
and the taste, the sound, the shape
of one hundred different words for love
which cannot convey
the way I feel for you
better than its soft curl
when I speak your name.
FROM THE ASHES OF
Send me your blacks poems,
I will wallpaper this room
from ceiling to floor
with their flame-licked,
will read them aloud
while I am in bed with a lover
I conjured from the ashes of
Dickinson, Parker, Plath and Nin.
