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 last sin

pale ashen sky
a bleary eye
clouds of recurring screams
‘is it worth it? all this love’
soft dissolve of a nascent rainbow
a picture self-exiled
draperies of soft white linen
soiled with rustic lovemaking
semen tears ‘is it all over ?’
pleadings to prevent the last nail
praying foras absolution
in blood internally split
this would be
the last sin
