heads and tails

 

HEADS

 

sugar dew drop in your words (not unlike happy tears

running down my sunburned cheeks) to live? Not to live?        

that is not a question now nor will it ever be again

characteristically speaking, something about you

travels over my skin like grave dancers and an ocean wave

ecstasy over your curls (creating palpitations with every

touch and never floating far from my mind)

angels covet or want as, covet is sin,

your sun kissed smile and lights (maybe even stars)

brighten when you arrive

 

 

 

 

TAILS

 

transcendent behavior marked by soft words

could i fall so readily?  so out of time and out

of touch?   goddess on my knees   you or

maybe not you (maybe the illusion of you in

my world running faster than sounds) force against

me while the grass turns a shade of love in the

summertime as rain whispers your name in my ear

grasping sugar sunshine in the cool wet places

only you know, only i know we comprehend

illusions not found in the common eye

who am i?

who am i? who are you?

ask me no questions

i will tell you no lies

i am the writing on the wall

i am the hand under mona lisa’s skirt

i am the ruler of unconditional things

on a sunny day i am the flower

turning towards the sun

i am shaken not stirred

i am the poets’ metaphor

i make you laugh, cry,

run and hide

i can tell stories from

bedrooms and back seats

i remember your name

the stars whisper mine

who am i? i am you
