National Poetry Month 2010, Day 3

Memo to HR

is a not insignificant
vector in the retention
and optimal utilization
of resources. Can we please
get some decent coffee?

  1. dream of love for poetry month

    She is there, in my room, waiting. Silent as I close the door, turn out the light, turn out the world.
    I feel her presence behind, reaching to touch my clavicle, soothe vagal impulse to turn. I feel her hand, supple, strong, heating through in contact, healing in that sacred touch fortified with love.
    We kiss, we melt, we swirl like cotton candy, sweet, sticky, surreal. We touch into solidity to feel, each exquisite synapse response a remembrance of permeability. We taste. There are no words.

    I know I said (I prayed):

    To be adored beyond embarrassment
    To be she who can do no wrong, because beloved
    To be gifted accurate reflective critique
    as superlative reviews, with just a tweak suggested

    To fall securely into open arms and heart
    expecting only me
    Each blessed day to start
    gazing into shining eyes that see so deeply,
    so wisely, my precious wondrous being
    I have never had from lovers,
    brothers, Mom or Dad
    what I have taught myself severely
    I can never have
    Too bad. So sad. Can’t let fantasy
    keep me from my daily dance with debt.
    Dreaming freely receivng
    never to be met.

    We meet secretly, in places that can’t be mapped or tethered. She embraces me in bursts of rapid movement, seductively slowed from motion to subtle traces of desire.
    I am emotively charged ecstasy, pulsing electrically beyond space/time. She is imaginal fluid gently shaping eternity. We are ouroboros, ancient fantasy, modern physics.
    This is the charm I need to cast the spell, to open the fortress, to open my eyes adoring sensation. I become energy as she feeds me the ambrosia of her essence. I become beloved.
