sounds

hollow images of noise
and cars
sliding past glass
smooth visions of light
and cold metal
and I have never felt so...
solitary
and I have never been so...
acutely pres'd
against this pane
I'm in here
and life has left me
for higher pursuits
and I'm scared
and I'm alone
it's January
and it's cold outside
the window is lock'd  ##

* * *

Lost

I left you here
unadulterated
and soft in this place
but what strange
and carnal mutations
have left thee in such a state
La Belle Dame sans merci
... sans regrets
vous... your every sigh
is foreign
now
je t'aime.. speak!
tangled tongues
at war with lips
service you gave me
yet none that lets me in
out of the rain
back
into the heat
of your ignorant bed
your french teeth
never kind enough
to form
syllables
your most intimate of thoughts
you savour the taste
of my pain
wine
intoxicating you
my blood
and I
wrought with weary resignation
cry
Drink!  ##

* * *

transportation

let fall
the thundering
soft lipped catechisms
of my mind
and the tenderness
chaotic
misunderstandings
of hope
in the belly
of a black winged bird  ##
