Maxine

You are the hound the stags of history ran before I feared your coming before you came Your panting breath upon my heels The flames of desires No tropic rain can quench At nights from distant pasts You call my name And I in sleep or waking keep the refrain Of memory humming on the shores of thought Over and over and again. Where shall I find you who seek my demise How can escape you That my desire pursues What is it that calls me back again Honey lips from hibiscus hour Hips undulating Like the Blue Mountain misted with power Is it some treasure in love Undiscovered unknown Or is it old age Surfing the the fleeting sands with rage To be the swan singing In the hunter's cage?
