Love. Cosmic.


in a cosmic winter,



and seashell pleasure moans,

the gesture of starlight 

within your nutshell black thick eyelashes.

Late in the 

night Paganini vivace,

we are acolytes of warmth,

your fragrance 

is lunar summer.

The skyphos shimmers and flows with sweet wildness.

Large grape sweetness,

I preserve 

the X-ray 

of your jazz heart.

You are my counterpart

at this hour

of anchored boats.

Ishmael's archery

reveals an El Dorado,

we walk 

on water,

with pearl feet,

we walk 

on wine,

your name has the music of dove-like piano notes,

you are mine and there are Indian flowers

in your hair;

God is love.

I light 

my Benson & Hedges,

your sitar strings


and alight

from moon horses,

you reside in my nostrils.
