Sex on Mars
From an age of oblivion
and beyond: fear in the near
The party leaks and gasps and bursts
Glowing coals of fairground people
dissolve and cackle
in ethers of knowledge . . .
Circles crack and chimes slide in;
a hot flush of distortion
is neatly mastered in reality ~
a coincidence of difference
in heavenly concatenation.
Here she comes . . .
She from nowhere else!
A delicate naughtiness stretches out
in growing proportion
on an up-and-coming stair of stars
Static points of motion curve
the extravagant flow of acceptance
ripples of wine
blown through sadness.
An erotic quietism with you ~
sensual spirit, once branded criminal in virtue;
you rub the roots of the void with your mother glue;
my senses envelop the rainbow of your flush through
my dark side.
Your appeals find no pleasure unmet with completion
in my sloshing mind ~ your grace so simple,
artlessly eluded in superstition.
Your flesh is lulled slantwise, in spirit ~
Ill move the soft tense of your legs apart
Ill reach the chuckles of your Martian heart
Well make the runway shudder
blend in laughing surrender . . .
A spotlessly blemished tongue-tied enigma.
Now that now is foremost
Brightly remembered sparks still coast
Autumn leaves & wood smoke
Linger the webs of summer
Shadows in the meeting place
Step out of separation
Dying ~ instinct ~ kissing!
I ran for you in the ancient
My night-burners set the woods
Your eyes scorch down scaring
Your toes hop the hem of reality
We tuck the spidery stars to
In the forests of future ~ timeless
~ to sleep!
Magic sounds flash out in recurrence,
causing hellish remains to be released fantastically
on atomic staircases.
Soft embers and feathers
fragments of dignities
of Armageddon & Parties
blow the Peace together
