Old medicine

Lately I’ve been feeling
the need for some vigorous sexual healing,
for the kind of salvation that I find
when I’m tangled with someone supine.

Because there’s a peace whose only tender
is a heartfelt sweet surrender,
and once you let that love inside
you’ll grow lush with lust and pride.

Because when another throws you down
and feverishly goes to town,
when you trust enough to let them in,
it’s then that the healing can begin.

And yes, the right person will rip you apart,
but they’ll do it without hurting your heart.

The lights of my life

Sunshine
lights up my days
like a summer bonfire.
I pass the long hours sweating,
until
the daylight begins to wane and
I lay there shivering
under the pale
moonlight.

Weired wisdom

This I know:
you reap what you sow
when you seek an “upstream” life
and invite struggle and strife
rather than going with the flow.

The Night

The night passes
like a cheap whiskey:
it burns me.

It calms me
like a hot shower,
like a sweet dream.

It excites me
like an evening gown,
like a flash of skin.

It frightens me
like a coming storm,
like a night without stars.

It saves me
like a fierce embrace,
like unconditional love.

Like a long draw on a cigarette,
the night passes through me,
and I taste the fire.

I am here

Water flowing over stone;
the wind carries the night;
only fire and dawn are absent,
but now I am here.

Couples curl together in alcoves;
others seduce novels and schoolwork;
no one stands alone,
but now I am here.

The water sings;
the people speak;
silence is unheard of,
but now I am here.

Through the sun and the heat,
through traffic and congestion,
I have traveled long,
and now I am here.

Now, I am here.
