BREATH

Of breath water love  
Breath is best  
As long as you are breathing  
The other two will come  
 
As if the flowers care  
 
We are smoke walking  
Constantly doused and stoked  
By doubts and lust  
Cheer up ignore these words  
 
just as the flowers ignore my words  
 
Better to cultivate breath  
Like one thirsty for love  
And know love like you know air  
 
and water the flowers everywhere  
 
Ingest love without obsession  
Not like possessions possess  
Or drugs drug  
Love not like a worker on pay day  
Rampaging through the shops and bars  
I pray you do not love like I have done  
Nights waiting for smoke with beady eyes  
Or gobbling my heart in a hermits cave  
But like silent moonlight  
 
and sunlight on flowers everywhere  
 
On lovers below covers or from love above  
Breathlessly buried in my body abode  
Ouch startled by swarm stings  
As if death was important  
A candle a boat or a bowl  
Instead as thoughtless as breath  
Live blessed  
 
as a bee on flowers everywhere
