At the core
Hunters we were
Facing the daily job
Fueled by the desire to live—
And pass on
What separates us
From them
Is our delicate tongues
The ability to dream—
And desire a feeling of release

April showers — in May
The flowers cannot breathe
I cannot breathe
Rest easy
These tears run down my cheek
What a disastrous — delicate day

I lucked out
With a friend like you
Striking gold
You are superior
You are something to behold
Conversations in the dark
Come with convincing choice words
Please—tell me again
All the things that you prefer
The fabric of my pillowcase
Matches your eyes
As I close mine
My mind begins to memorialize

Like adolescents we were
Jumping over a fire
Hand in hand
The love and desire

Embracing one another
Now part of the scenery
The sun begins to fall
Oh, the irony

Gliding through the night
Our tongues collide
With dew on the grass
We hold on for the ride
Simply stunning.
So divine.

A bed of peonies,
                               grow thicker.
Sweet, subtle touch.

Year after year,
                          the bed will be there.
For comfort.
Who could ask for more?

Look out the window,
                                       the moonlight shore.
The waves crashing beneath.
Just out of reach.                  

We have so much here,
                                        to live for.
O sweet spontaneous

            fingers of
prurient philosophers pinched

often have religions taken
thee upon their scraggy knees
squeezing and

buffeting thee that thou mightest conceive

to the incomparable
couch of death thy

What is the difference,
Asked the educator,
Between being skillful,
Such as a *******,
And being educated,
Such as a teacher?

replied a prostitue,
One educates skillfully,
The other skillfully educates.

Which is which?
The educator responded.

Depends, said the *******,
On the pay and benefits.
