quotes

 

stargazer

I have no outside of you

whispering from the peak and fizz

my cloven spark

surging love when I least expected 

we sub-merge,

an exquisite brocade brings it on

our souls are lit

and no gods may interfere

as they are,

embarrassed already with inferior 'in the beginnings'...,

and anyway what colours would they ignite now,

that could ever oppose the rainbow fire

of our first and holy kiss?

 

purge

automaton

no-one can say

they did not see it coming,

did not sense

a tiny stricken wing -

my spark, the clean-room,

bleach rubbed it out

all across the atrocious scene,

holier than thou, and thou, and thou...,

wasted, fierce

i rise like vapour

pure again

 

for Gail

you are

porcelain

slender, perfect

eyes shaped like compassion,

midnight pools

where the beloved dive,

composed, unsure

just-so

balanced between emotional tides

yet

still

you unfold,

flower-like

trusting, open

dressing ink black,

the heady, heavy rose musk

you touch the veneer,

a fragile gift

set in amongst the sleeping,

beatific inside and out, you are,

a gentle joy

yet to be formed
