of  juxtaposition...
Thinking Out Loud

Her mind
was a universe
of  juxtaposition...
  
love  hate               heaven  hell
peace    war
  passion  apathy       beauty  ugliness          
fantasty reality
happiness        melancholy
freedom captivity     strength weakness
innocence and guilt

It travelled back and forth
and
sometimes
her albatross was a
perpetual quest for balance
but
other times she was certain
she wouldn't want it
any other way.

I need to find the thoughts which lie
                    My throat
Above^
Yet behind <My eyes>

Trying
Is the purgatory
In the juxtaposition
Of doing
And not

in juxtaposition to

Happiness
is more cruel
in juxtaposition to
Sorrow
than Sorrow
itself

the juxtaposition of communication

trip me up
get my attention
and I will take you
where you would rather not go
the juxtaposition of communication
a looters charter of the innocent mind

into perfect juxtaposition.
Walter James Little V

Resting side-by-side,
our minds slip gently
into perfect juxtaposition.
Our desire and imagination
bestow upon our eyes
visions of wonder
amid the moonlight hours.
We surf on the swells
of soft cotton clouds,
sending ripples through the cosmos
as we swim among the stars.

Two cats
engaged
in a hazardous starring contest,
the first that blinks - CONCEDES!

"Compassionate Conservatism"
and
"friendly fire":
Euphemistic oxymorons
capable of
destroying hospitals.

Baby soft scruff

Eyes, pacific and sultry

Sly yet honest

Childlike and sensual

Witty and innocent

Bring forth the animal

The infectious mischief

The lusty rhythms in darkened rooms

The stolen moments in Lower West Side alleyways

Long, piercing looks over a bottle of Dal Forno Amarone

Savage concupiscence

Your eyes suggesting the next move

Bodies entwined in the back of a cab

At the bridge and we walk across

And I indulge in your juxtapositions

All the way to Brooklyn

Oh wind,
You are a fickle thing,
You bring tidings of a chill
That can be resolution, absolution
Or anything in between.

Oh wind,
You are a gracious host,
Whose cruelty is unmatched
In your gift of mirth and hope.
Your wildest gusts are mild
To the coldest misanthrope.
