as the lights go out

you said you would give me the
 pitch and valley of venus
  and I would give you
    all her
oestrual moons

suffering through water, crawling hard through august
  drawing with frenzied fort the
    alps and scatters of a 
mystifying faith
  in unfamiliar bodies, our bodies flesh and
    unfamiliar

pretend again against the fisher of men
  with grasping breaths, with ponderous sweat
    we dreams.  seed and soup of shifting
      protean odds
soured minds fettered to the rouse of agitating streams
  of what is true and yet truer still

time wasted or well spent
  end all the same
   to me
like nicked.  a quick cut
  bloody dust kicked up
    from the cut
the electric bump

you said you would give me the
  pitch and valleys of venus
    and I would give you
      her fiercest of moods
her most fiercest
  of moods
