A New Tangled Intimacy

 

A new tangled intimacy

Distant with stripes she’s decked in

Climbing forever

Into black clouds, threatening to rein

On these drops of sweat

Pouring o’er a taught body,

Absorbed with another program

A mindless form, but distracting pleasure

Sipping in and out

The nectar, viscous, sweeping, over

Steel flowers populating these crowded aisles-

Banishment deserved for curves

Against a norm of straight lines

Making-

those lonely trails in the invisible miles

like the ones I once observed

Cutting to and fro across mica flats

 

[Do it princess, on a  metal flower, make

The pistil dip and spread his pollen,

(that is the payment,

and

the reward

is

‘progress’)

 

Elbows in she streamlines to make her letter

Her stamp, her move, a sentence, a vision.

Time deceives us, painting music and sculpting bodies,

Mimicking images on the monitor,

It can’t be trusted.
