Hot and Cold

*Hot & Cold*

“The Professional.”
only in my eyes
the temperature.
Mercury, rising above:

Boiling point of no return,
like heartfelt tears
on the surface,
pouring of dryness
from the deep
not good enough.

You stay,
Numbness against the impression
of adoration
wallows off
Venus, the frigged interiors of:

Freezing below zero, 
from my form,
Swallow knots
intent look 
nowhere to be found -
in the zeniths
I grasp it all.

The secret of you
I hunger!
Cannot have,
nowhere to be found-
no, lease.
A kiss so endlessly,
I need!
I want!
your vibes
not fixed
your placid
muddy waters.
And still I may be smitten: -)

The intensity of extremes here and desire. Be good to hear aloud this one.

Your poems are a moveable feast. Stealing the line from Hemingway when he was talking about Paris and how it would never leave him. When I read your poems I am reminded of times that will never leave me. Thank you for touching my life

I really enjoy and appreciate the way you assemble words. There's structure, but not so much as to constrain; you take advantage of that space. I read, and re-read, this one. J
