Title:     Talk
Date:      Tue Apr  8 12:42:39 1997

You ask me to talk
so we are talking
and our words keep thudding
like litter amidst a waste yard

You ask me to kiss you
so we are
and our salivas are rolling
like the Dead sea water
on the run from the Moon

You wish we'd make love
so we are
our bodies like trees 
numbly locked together
drained of blood at a blood tide-out

I wish you'd sail away
traversing the horizon
and you ... are sitting still and smiling
like another mirror
that I have wept before blue and salt
