“Querencia”

Lost my place

Amber alert

The rope and bucket fell down the well

How can I reach down deep within me now?

That place where the all gathers

That place that feeds the essence of me

Down there amongst the darkness

I count on it

“I Am a Selfish Person”

“I Am a Selfish Person”

 

I am a selfish person

A certain self-assertion

The world rolls out before my eyes

I am the center of it all

Fault me not

Such facts perceived

Somewhere deep inside of me

 

How else would I see things?

 

I am a selfish person

Most certain of this assertion

The world is built of self-told lies

The universal point of it all

Faults forgot

Most facts recede

In the darkest depth of me

 

How else could I see things?

Wanton Wants

“Wanton Wants

Underneath the surface

Resides my true intent

Kissing madly madly

Hushed proximal breath

Leaning into it

Digesting

The sense of you and I

Culminates in sins chosen

Lost in galaxies,

You call eyes

Excited eve electric

Desire for insides

Insights new arrival

Forbidden by design

High hanging fruit from your garden,

Your basket of delights

I’d trust a serpent ‘fore an Angel

If you gave me one long night

Press, yes press against me

Find my heartbeat

Drive me wild

You brought a constant deep desire

When you hit me with that smile
