Beneath the bust of Persephone

Beneath the bust of Persephone

The last remnants of day
tuck behind the hillside
as I contemplate another evening
with you

Todays sun razor slid the horizon
until dark clouds began to form
over this country side

But in my mind
the storm had already broke

That is when I saw you

Your black dress tight
to your hips

Your legs stretching like railroads
across an Italian landscape
and the sweet smell of the grapes there
as I day dream about ambling
across the clouds with you

A hand on your thigh draws me back
to the fact that I am alone
and the darkness
is shouldering in

I light a cigarette
and blow the contemplation deep into the air

Your dark hair frames your face
like a stage curtain
but you are a play
I have a hard time understanding

And I reach for you anyway

Gently touch your shoulders
as you gently shrug
but I kiss the last words of refusal
off your lips
because I know you are the one bullet
that could pierce the emptiness
around my heart
when you look at me helplessly

I take your hand as we walk
through the rain like innocence
and never say I love you

We keep the lights off
but move like memory
across each other
