Onepoem


I wish I could have written
one poem
throughout my life:
the interweaving of my years
through your heart




DRAWER


Snug as a sultan
In your heart's drawer
Afraid
One day my turn will come
And you'll discard me.




MY SINS


My sins are foolish
as though
greedy mice
probing for
trapped cheese.




LOOSEN YOUR HAIR


Loosen your hair
fold up your soul
feast within my corridors.

I will be your ferry
between atoms of contentment
and the drops of despair.




UNREST



Yesterday
I parted
The pleasure of her breasts

Today I woke
Biting
A rancid sofa.
