saint ill - (ghazal)

saint ill - (ghazal)

late @ nite i read only my own work / gather
thots / back log / written & tossed aside

like so much water / drown from cold
white white / the cold is white /death

but do i care about these things
no / i do not care about cold / or crazy

& i wonder about dead poets / ones
who kill them selves / who write in pain

& these are not my thots any more

i hand them over to you / i give you
my pain / ease the horrification of shame

silver snow falls silent
yes it's winter / january you see

& i can't get the sick feeling out of
my stomach / it sits heavy / mourning

perhaps tomorrow the temperature will
rise toward zero / minus 20 c hurts bones

arms twinge with heat / knarled knots

what really burns / is the truth
some how things will sort them selves out

i don't think i can talk to you
with out my heart pounding through
my chest / / flashes of memory
i can't confess / i remember a kiss
a touch not un pleasant

did i respond? that's what i want to know

did i give a signal / an error / i'm sure it
was all an error / a case of bad judgement

a case of:
out of one's mind

why me? chosen to bear the ring of truth
bearer of bad news / burden of sin

my lust rests between your lips
the ache of my skin rests under your hands

possession / sin of skin / desire becomes
a demand / some thing rises in the belly

across mid section / sends a signal to the brain
what is this / do you remember / i don't recall

what really happened / @ one with the earth
flat / curled up / st.ill /
