cigarettes & sex

 
 
the sky stretched pale, persistent and thin
as moth’s wings; our thoughts transparent
our needs primitive
 
between
lust & greed
 
freed of stillness flowing to sea
ideology portrayed sequential and clear
yearning for chaos, maelstrom
storm becoming ‘Art’ of ashes
deep in valleys, high on hills
dark with deed innocence consumed
mouth to mouth, teeth to teeth
in stagnated breath
we swallowed pride
in halo of the night
 
between
cigarettes & sex
 
I asked you  
to not interpret
method of my madness
watching the pendulum  
of my heart
swing from passive hands
needing cruelty of words
mercury of thoughts
you gave me nothing, but
silence in measured weights
 
between
love & hate
 
crossing criss-cross'd threads
covering feeble bones  
with molasses and honey
I laid there  
in shame-less nakedness
next to you
watching you twirl  
cylinder spiral'd world
between thumb and forefinger
inhaling
fire and passion
 
while I trembled
ebbed in web
feeling  
the burn.
