You Speak of Love

You speak of love And I Suddenly 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 For I Muted in sorrow still must tell The Holy Grail Was only the casting Of desire's spell.
