DEATH sheltered upon the spit of dying souls;
sun and heat a giant cat with one flat foot
upon a devil’s wing — the homosexual and
amorous spirits that cross a garden in dead

my throat an elevator from heaven descending
toward hell with every swallow; my non-
existent ring upon a broken finger as throbbing
to smell the clean spirit of angels are as hanging
clothes upon a clothesline within a Spring’s breeze.

TOO! i am too tired for Love___i drained
my member silently this day: of no love,

of fire and death\and me –alone.

it is the brightest of nights;
the exceptional expectation
which fate has granted the every-
NOTHING. paradoxically enough
if one believes in Life;
kissing phenomena believing
science when flasks and
atom smashers dance together
and flesh/blood kill each other
the more paradoxical enough
today my lips bled when
i spoke just a word,
and a new element born!

With age the vine grows sweeter
but some liquor even sooner
a gallant soul to mix
