Hills Archaic



hills archaic

of antediluvian myth

smitten by love

also worldly hate

hills pock marked

hills of blue, green

reddish hue

I amble along your body

I know your lust

long forgotten stories

your road sides of tar

and all along those caves

excavating for wealth

the rocks that stand

erect, posthumous

I sing lullabies of content

malcontent, and in summer’s rain

I play the lover, with trepidation

as your swelling fruits disturb

hyacinth dreams

as your cloudbursts leave me

scurrying to a home, beyond homes

as your caterpillars frisk my coat

my tainted armor of well being.
