cigarettes & sex

 

the sky stretched
pale, persistent and thin
as mothís 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 ĎArtí 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
to halo of the night

between
cigarettes & sex

I asked †
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 shameless nakedness
next to you
watching the master-
ful twirll of
cylinder spiral'd world
between thumb and forefinger
inhaling
fire and passion

I trembled
ebbed in web
feeling †
the burn.
