love poem




tonight

the moon

on your doorstep



& you

etched on the mat..

cars howling in the lonesome night



reaching for the last cigarette

locked in to the last awesome song



to topnext



this is entitled

poet
 



the casual cigarette

dalmation
 
tsk
 
the tumbletousled hair
 

 
ambles through his poems
 
lean
 
crisp
 
astringent
 
ambles to a corner
 
newspaper.



malt shop!
 
ambles through an icecream soda
 
ambles
 
      through an
       
           ice
		      
              cream
			   
                   soda

i am a cunning southern fox 
striped 
my notebook 
spendthrift stars! 
disabled on a listless sunday.. 
 
 
nightingale swamp fox 
lord the spectral night 
::mmmmmmasochistic 
be my spunky social duster 
see her press 
see her press the plunger 
 
 
(mexican loco weed) 
my friend 
my whiteskinned doe 
her cathedral of ice 
her mumbling galactic corridors

summertime

(heads bent to a symphony of clocks





his horny finger raised

translucent euphony of skin



through the window a sack of stolid cloud

who can read these runes?

dress faded to the colour of sauerkraut

cloud clenches rocks
