from G OO DNIGHT…



REGARDING WHAT

given what manifests

it
is clear who

does what to whom

is
silence between
give and take more
than
can be
said

Not Knowing Why...Then Goes

into this heat and sacred moment he hears her plainly say: "Do what you want with me."

Want demands other posturing
Now demands silence play is with mind reply is not an understanding of why
set is into his rocks apart from
matters and survival

"no one said it would be easy"

words image

possibility in
her


UNTITLED

ample thighs reveal is also among scrawny day lilies her swing moves heads to eyes eyes to see head hair deliberately flung let out into the open

she

finding that and this and there

nothing solid
to stand on

one foot in mud

stand up straight

tilt head

shake balance

blue sky

reach for

open mouth

only word clearing the bite of

want

here even see

beyond anger feelings

cut¬through steamy
rise
and

sunlit legs

gone

a woman with
long fingers, hands, hair
vine round loss for one word

out
of her mouth her tongue goes into

pull is

between sheets beside the blue pillow

tawny girl a wo man is with

bright is in
I m age i nation

language tells what is meant

he unbuttons summer dress

the one with the
yellow flowers
