the last sin
  pale ashen sky
a bleary eye
clouds of recurring screams...
i am a zoo
  an octopus leviathan
tentacles into an ocean
of unformed emotions...
syphilis and love  
  syphilitic pall
stifles the clear blue
i contort...
 
shell and pearl
  amidst highs and lows
in life's ocean flows
a shell peony-mouthed...
 
i am an unmarried mother
 
  fed on stings
of barbed milk morality
my child-plankton...
 
the lovers
  cell upon cell
bridge of their union
hung on the pillars...
rebirth
  ogre of age
and time cavil
at a warm picture...
the young today
  innocence thaws
at the altar
of ambition...
 

the watchman


on an id night
the watchman wearily shoos away
stray dogs
hopeless vagabond
delinquent lover
drunk husband with oily skin
and an imaginary encounter
while his wife tosses
in her stone cold bed

the sprinkling of twilight
the cackle of plovers
and the watchman departs
leaving us alone
to indulge in consciential
pandering
