build your mind with love
that so when you fall
into the black deeps;
love will be waiting.

I LIKE TO SAY YOUR NAME

I like to say
your name

when you're
not here

turn you
into sound

conjure you out of
thin air

so that you appear
before me

dressed in sound
only

memory sketching in
the rest of you

as if sound
was just an outline

and love
colours you in

adding the voice last
so I can hear you say.

"Hello you..!"
and there you are

as present
as present

can be.

I like to say
your name

when you're
not there.

Hello short darling
I would plow you
like spring earth

but your husband
has only been
dead eight

eight months and I
fear the shiver of
my thighs

would be a cold
cold reminder
of him.

Don't jump from
that three story
building,

woman with no
shoes and rag
dress,

wait until
it's on
fire.

I encircled her waist
with my hands and
lifted her, not as
a trophy, but
to  kiss.
