  237.     

Lovers

In mind

In kind - the distance blind to no one;
Background plays of random trysts
Pro tempore illusory mists
Until caprice bestows upon the two
Another fling from eyes.

A change: THIS dalliance, he's aware -
No surge to kiss nor loss of care
To all as fingers roam her skin -
His reconciled affection begs for kin -
It's in the flit of byes.

Blind assumption caves to swells
Of wrath inside her heart - quells
Naivety - which then recoils, compels:
She craves another married man!

Who cares? -
Who fears delusion in a plan?

Marmaduke

Your gentle paw appraised my cheek
To beg a bite to eat
Not long since you gouged a vole
Of evolutionary flesh

Domestication
Doesn’t mean replete.

Morning Comfort

As I awoke,
The warmth of skin,
Caress of hand
And softness in the kiss
Beheld me

My Happy New Year

I tripped,
Fell into a new year.

Heavy hung elusive cheer
Atop a pool of stagnant hope;
A grubby smear upon the faint horizon.

I puzzled in a maze of cancer-blessing fags,
Took to weed; drawing drags, I felt
The desperation surge within.
Search for peace wore ever thin.

If I were freed from self-perpetuation
Of negation – deep depression –
I’d clamber for a life that had a meaning.

It isn’t working.
I think I’ll stick with dreaming
Yet again.
