Laughing Medusas

When I write, it's everything that we don't know we can be that is written out of me, without exclusions, without stipulation, and everything we will be calls us to the unflagging, intoxicating, unappeasable search for love. In one another we will never be lacking. ~Helene Cixous "The Laugh of the Medusa"

There's nothing precarious
About the balance
In which I hang

I have found
In you

Or rather
With you

And while so much
Hangs in the balance
I'm feeling lucky

How I Slept 

"How was it?"
She asked me

It being the
If undeclared
Reference to you

You with me
In your bed

"I sleep so well
In his bed."
I answered

As if the sheets
Were smoother
The pillows
The environment
More conducive
To rest

The lies we tell
And others
Are baldfaced
I realize

As I lay awake
In your smooth sheets
One soft pillow under my head
One soft pillow in my arms
Where you belong

I retract my
Previous statement
I don't
"sleep so well"
in your bed

What I meant was
I sleep so well
In your arms

Any Country, Any Time 

I heard you were an idiot
a fool, a bloody heretic
a man for who a heart's not fit

oh ruler, oh empowered

I don't believe you have no soul
that compassion doesn't soon extol
its blessing on a heart so cold

oh ruler, oh empowered

in fact you are of my race
you occupy this human place
so another conclusion I must face

oh ruler, oh empowered

what sweet sorrow fills my breast
when I understand at your behest
thousands die and thousands rest

oh ruler, oh empowered

that someone of my human kind
could play as if they're dumb and blind
with death warrants by the thousands signed

oh ruler, oh empowered

upon the bank of a foreign river
you who god shall soon deliver
from obfuscation, lies forever

oh ruler, oh empowered

tis not your weapons, swords of might
that help you sleep in dead of night
that morning when we rise and fight!

oh ruler, oh empowered

when upon death's bed you go to lie
a million souls will come to spy
this man who killed and murdered nigh

oh ruler, oh empowered

as the walls come closing in
the death will fall upon next of kin
for how can they escape your din?

oh ruler, oh empowered

history is never "fair"
your story while you're lying there
will be remembered with great despair

oh ruler, oh empowered

when freedom it has loosed our cage
we'll dance upon your rotting grave
no good deeds for your soul to save

oh ruler, oh empowered

Sensuality Found 

In the damp morning breath of the ocean
Kissing the back of my neck
With the eager anticipation
Of a new lover

In the deep green ivy
Clinging to the bricks
Growing beyond the structure
It has built upon

In the shadow of dark clouds
Not threatening but enticing
Full to bursting... promising
Impending, intense release

In moments of silence
The half second between car alarms
The welcome peace that comes
With unexpected pleasures

I found my sensuality
In the mirror


What You Wear Out 

A dab of gloss
Upon your lips
A slight sashay
With your hips

Hot is an outfit
You wear

Those cute little shoes
Making your legs look just right
Leave you wincing home
Barely able to stay upright

Hot is an outfit
Wear Out

The botox injections
Can't lift your sorrow
And even the latest night
Can't fend off tomorrow

Hot is an outfit
Wears you out

Where the Honey Drips from the Sky  


Take me to that place
Where the honey drips from the sky

In your arms, in your space
The honey drips from the sky

Show me all there is to see
Open your heart and welcome me

We can watch clouds racing
We can lay content, embracing

Until honey drips from the sky

Anywhere else I'd be frightened
Fortifying the stone wall
That guards my self, my thoughts, my heart
But here with you I want to fall

Like honey
Dripping from your sky

a good start 

comfortable complexity
simple synchronicity

i can never take back

that never come clean

i can't reclaim

no chance of being found

wounds that may heal
leaving scars that won't fade

pain that i inflict
for which there is no salve

shatters and shards
in my wake

i will never pay reparations

i'll apologize
but you will feel sorrow
