A pendulum of tantric turmoil and
Blessed harmony

Quixotic city--brash,
Sangfroid merotomized and
Chrematistic--metro nonpareil.

Against the cold ladder she rests
which run up the red aging bricks
in the alley 
on a gray September day

Distended lips
In her arms I collapse

from sweat
and pangs
of the early heat

hern distended lips too
refresh me

And of the once I thought sylph
to my rescue

Within mine dome
as she like the fairy

like the poet Daver
of yore
heard the ambulance
rush toward me

Memory mirror 
supple sylph yields
and naked 
walks through liquid glass
towards your dark eyes
to float in black
legs wrapped
rapture drawn deep
unclothed into your arms
