words alive and dying as they come

by June 30, 2017 0 comments

sight cannot
initially be trusted

deny anything
that can be

obtained
as easily as by

the lifting
of a lid

visions are
another

matter entirely
subject everyone

to these immediately
make the night taste

of ad-lib and
orange liqueur

make trees grow
make orchards of

scratches and stardust
and marvels and blood

trace an elephant
on my back

in the infinite
constellations

make death
gasp and light

sing with your
eye-lash kisses

and your pomegranate
tongue

make words
in my throat

living and dying
as they come

i love you
i love you

i love you
as they come

editors note:

If not words, then gestures and grunts. Such saying must be said somehow. – mh clay
