Napolis 8h
I look
at you
and

my belly
of love
aches,


from it's
deepest
point
of view.

across the
street
on the
corner,


the same
wire framed
***** man

that I see

everyday
laughs
at the
psychotic
birds
splashing
through
puddles
in this
wide cracked
street.

my poems
today
fall apart
from me

so easily

with taste
like pull
pork
sandwiches
at a
county
fair.

the autumn
smells
of remembrance
of what
might
of beens
and what
should of
happens.

and my life
lies like
a water
color outline
racing down
the gutters
in the street.

on this
rainy day
without
you.

again.
Napolis 8h
Her cellophane
kisses.

the ones that
would lose
interest,

somewhere
between
"I love you,"
and "I love
you too."

the fights
for the
extra
pillow ,

that started
around
midnight
and then
continued

twelve
thirteen
rounds
into night.

rarely

ending
in a no
decision.

always
someone
had to
win and
somebody
had to
lose.

which in
hindsight
really said
so much
more about
us than
less.
.
the *****
dishes
rhythmically
floating
top side
in the
kitchen sink.

*******
pots and
pans,

lying around
like battle
ships stationed
in some
Pacific
harbour.

waiting
patiently
for the
Japanese
zeros to
attack.

and then
one day

they did.

odd to
think about
what we
leave
behind.

and sadly
what was
never
there

to begin
with.
Napolis 8h
Come take
your mind
on down
with me .

let our bodies
be canvases
to the tributes
of our
lives.

leave  
our old stories
like tattered
and worn
baggage

by the
door.

be each
others
savior for
awhile.

an old lover's
lament.

not trying
to fill in
each other's
water color
dreams,

with lies
or half
obligated
promises.

and finally
when the
late afternoon

comes to
swallow our
worn
innocence.

close the
door.

leave unsaid
the words
that must
be said.

return us
both with
some dignity


to the outskirts

of our lives.
Napolis 1d
we lie
deep
in love's
past illusions,

in speckled
darkness.

a greed
of loves
hunger
drives us.

under a
cantaloupe
slice moon
delicious.

my hollowed
self
shimmers
in your
reflection.

I cannot
hide
from you.

though light
beckons us,

over the
horizon,

we will have
none of it.

we slumber
in the
belly
of the
darkness
that engulfs
us

unwilling
to move
or be
stirred by
the morning
light,

an abandoned
tea ***
blows
off key
in the next
room.

it will
have none
of this
morning
either.

and as I
lie in your
arms
and you
in mine.

life is

simple...


we pretend
forever

away.
Napolis 1d
A deep
drink of you

and I
tilt back my head.

and drive till the
first light of morning breaks
this evenings
back.

I roll
down
my windows.

tear off
the rear
view
mirror.

nothing
in my past
that I ever
want
to see
face
to face

again.

let all
of your
adolescent
lovers
crawl back
and hide
under
your gypsy
covered bed,

like
puppets
dangling
from your
strings
of desire.

you will
not be
needing
them
again.

the broad
streets
and the
back
alleys
of your
hometown
lie
in wait
for your
feet
to kiss
them
awake.

time
to find
your
moment

and cast
aside
all of
your broken
******* jack
dreams,

that
were
never pretend
dreams
from somebody else's
dreams to begin
with.

come take
my hand,

slam your
front door.

let's dance

and love

again.

and pray
for love
at heaven's
gate...


no strings
attached.
Napolis 1d
A secret
passed

given in
confidence
of heart

from you
to me.

confided
in trust,

held with
a mother's
care.

the guard
has been
set.

boundaries
defined.

seasons
to follow
to be

tended
with grace.

souls to
be harvested
not wasted
to seed.

a child to
dance

by songs

of you..

and under
every  
moon"s ripe
bellied
****.

from
here to
eternity's
gate.

each day

a Lovers
prayer
I will
send

to you.
Napolis 2d
Beneath the
bleachers,
our toes buried

taunt by
misguided
popcorn
bites on

one another's

delicious necks,

our life
is a wonderland.
of confetti
and caged
animal
salvation.

our laughter
echoes
from the
furled
corners
of heavy
canvas tents.

panting sighs

and moans

to the wind.

sparks fly
from the
mingling
of our ****

and passion

play..

dust
finally
settles.

on a show
that will
never
end.

nothing
tamed.

two souls
saved.

by big
nippled tops

and the deep
revival

deliverance

in your eyes.

Amen.
