Image for the poem my heart is a flame-dancer wandering along the distant riverside

my heart is a flame-dancer wandering along the distant riverside

her feminine curves broadcast
ripe messages of conquest
and luxurious harmonics

delaying the reclamation
of the darkened silhouette
that haunts the boundaries
of my tattered cloak of isolation

as stars gaze down into my eyes
the connections abound

light shines
in tremendously
tiny increments

the geometry suffocates
like the emaciated outline
of her sensual starlight smile
cleaved into the halted
black of night

she presses a pair of hands against my ears
but cannot overturn the fevered chariot race
that rumbles past the dog-eared page corners
of my careening crypt of a heart

as the fading singularity
of her whispering fingertips
lazily dwindles into the glacial stare of night:

I reach into the rings of Saturn to liberate
the boundless energy from a handful of matter

refilling our cup of wanting
until it overflows

until it overflows
