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...
  ogre of age
and time cavil
at a warm picture...
the young today
  innocence thaws
at the altar
of ambition...

cross examination

part one: seekings?

your artlessness
your seeking
touch me
my libido
gets an adrenalin shot
every time i talk about your mind
i think about your breasts
metaphysical titillation makes
for a good alibi
or are you playing my game
i burn deep down
forbidden salacious images
run on a 35 mm screen
in my mind

then there’s this archetypal villain
or am i not sure
how you’d respond
