PLACE

Drive me to another head
What’s needed is some time with the stars instead 
A bowl of hot chunky monkey soup 
And the right sized spoon 
Something that’ll help me sleep 
Make the shallow more than deep 
Stop the things that creep 
Into and out of this cold cold kiss

Feed me from a breast of flesh that’s rude
But not at all crude
Something with a miraculous sweeping curve
Something that moves when it does 
Something out of focus 
That oozes hocus-pocus 
A bewitching broth of hot hot hot 

Put me in my place
With just enough space 
Where reality doesn’t ask to be squeezed
Where angels never sneezed 
And all is right from beautiful sunrise to beautiful sunrise
