Dreams May Come

 

 

I am bathing in a certain

Youthful omnipotence. Seeking that which

Makes itself known. Desire. Hot messes. Travesties. Smoothened

Physicalities, legs trembling, scattered

Locks. Beds which reek of lavender

In the moonlight. A sweet flame is

Splashed upon the walls, candles

Empty, dancing daintily in the blue corners of

The night.

 

And I am bathing in this youthful

Impulse. Craving certain primeval

Reproductive tendencies, which seldom are spoken of.

Lust. Teen Aged Years and the

Inherent desires for curved hot steamed bodies.

Floral hearts. Figures beneath the immature sheets.

Ragged bodies, unknown, in triumphant pleasure

An idiosyncratic symphony of metronomic

Sound which will resonate thru the hot

Exasperation of the room. Endlessly seeking, ending the

Seemingly endless pleasures and hot

Passions of these youthful hours.

For it is known. Nothing is

Better than…

 

 

 

 

 

 

La Mer

 

 

Picturing Death,

Death on the streets.

 

And my soul

            Floats away and

Drowns itself in `-

 

It has been

So long since

            My brain has

                        Ceased to begin

 

            The year grows shorter…

The Sea is a very simple

            Place.

 

It is so long

            And life

                        Is red as the

            Night.

 

Trembles in sleep.

            The cold hours

                        Have

            Arrived.
