You Speak of Love
You speak of love
No mere Jason for a mother's life
Cannot shake how flimsy
The promises of loyalty sail
The desert sea of needs.
And so beyond
The gourmet of the eyes
For swivelling hips and honeycomb drips
I sought my paradise
Beyond the wilting flowers of lips
And coming back to port
Accepted whatever creature comfort
Bloomed on providence
Muted in sorrow still must tell
The Holy Grail
Was only the casting
Of desire's spell.
