Ensalivé

Love drives upriver

so threading with life,

passion as crime under arrest –

 

Duty escape sacrifice temptation

alarm alarm alarm –

the sweet salivation of sex?

 

No? furtive, No! jealous –

as a sex toy is

the dead letter of porn.

 

Death, love and sex!

it all gets compressed!

how mad & sad & sweet

the magic of fire, locking horns.

 

Find credence

reading bloodstones

for contradictions immutable,

crash and condom insolute

fingers at my neck

ludicrous & imperial.

 

Paint this body

the tireless color

of salmon, diving pink

into The Red. 

 

Spawning eggs

on banks of gravel

scandalously high!

as a mountain of death.

 

Eaten by bugs

eaten by bears

love is mother earths

heart swallowing share –

 

Love is weather

love is the sea

tide in tide out, chasing

the currents 

 

for a heart rorifluent

as a slave is to freedom.
