#467. dreamtime

March 28, 2011

another early memory
to chastise and beguile me
so it often begins
and will eventually end
sometimes even before
my wife falls asleep
much to her delight
because she feels
the kisses are much sweeter
when she is awake

how can i help but agree


#42. a fragile close

October 7, 2009

a fragile close

lies fine like
        fragrant linen
                lay full between us

an essence distilled
     of a mundane finish
         over a divine origin.

the shattered crystal
        the broke angry knife
                 the wife lost

crowded in a dangerous bed
          where a husband rejects

glowing dancers allow
            strangers to fashion
                             magnetic myth

creating a six month
              world of winter cat
                        spring sex

and bonds
          unbreakable by marriage
                                 divorce or death.
