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...
 

i am a zoo

an octopus leviathan
tentacles into an ocean
of unformed emotions
a senile dinosaur
resurrects
in a jungle of vacuity
a bloodhound
incessantly knaws
at the throb of my
heart

dreaming
i gave refuge to octopus and dinosaur
the dog being stray
i have become a zoo
of the primordial
wail moan or poetry
