My heart trembles

when
she anticipates then
jumps
with erotic abandon
my stroking
lightly the soft skin
between her
fingers

Roy Adams is a superannuated university professor who specialized in international labour rights. Until about six years ago, he had read little poetry and had attempted to write even less. Since then he has taken several courses, attended international workshops, studied with some well-established poets and has managed to publish about 30 poems, several of which won minor awards. His work has appeared in, for example, Vallum: Contemporary Poetry, Feathertale, Rat’s Ass Review, Hamilton Arts & Letters, and is forthcoming in The Fiddlehead. He serves on the executive of the Tower Poetry Society, Canada’s oldest local poetry workshop organization.
