In us
recurrences
stir to the pitch of dream,
tremors that flesh
the early miles
with snarls of light,
seal my body tightly
into the brutal miracle
of the metallic hours
as they shiver
and rack the body with sobs
in syllables that erupt
a quick ambergris,
psoriasis of the soul,
like foamy sparrows
perched on our arms,
clutched to the tender pink
apothecary of roses, sink
some terrible radiance of talons
deeply there, to drink
memory down in one breath
you wreath fires brighter
than those of the grave Christ,
burning ghost- rose bushes
to restore these agonies
to the frantic dignity of lambs
as they lay in the wet pastures
of heaven that are now
but a murmur of feeble wings
and dreary rain,
on the hot rashes of the skin
that run like ink, burn
as Ankh becomes an undulant
crucifix sealed by a valentine
written in the quick blood,
of a recurrent dream.

God, this reminded me of withdrawal.
You write with such life experience
babyg.

Stunning . . . if we do not write together someday
I will be forever jealous.

like foamy sparrows
perched on our arms,
clutched to the tender pink
apothecary of roses, sink
some terrible radiance of talons
deeply there,

To be able to write this way, you need the ability to SEE this way.

A remarkable thing, really
