kissing ecstasy goodbye

you came undone
when you done me wrong
your tongue hard with words
that shaped your face
with lack of grace

twisted, snarling angry dog
never to lie down near the Master,
head to heel and heel to heart
crushing wild
the red rose its thorns
growing on your head
into circles of home-bound grass

I loved you once
my tongue touched your heart
these days have passed like diamonds into rust
then into the dust
of unyielding mouths,
we tie rocks to clouds
and sighs to sutras,
leaping off the page
like gazelles
on poems

kiss ecstasy
goodbye, we drink
the hemlock of despair,
the bane of existence like wolves
breathing down our backs,
moonlit creatures
of moss and stone,
we howl.

    I tried to tie, I said, I said, some rocks to billowed clouds. In this I was a fool, a chump! For rocks, as is both well and widely wist, pass always through these vapor stumps, and gathered mists, and won't be bound with lumps. So all I’ve really done is stone the earth with quarried things that loud ker-thump, become the cause of people being sore bereaved with grievous bumps. Oh no! Look out! Please mind your head! And look out poems Gazelles upon you tread!
