Painlessness

It seems it is time
for painlessness and a laugh
for lolling over the side of heaven’s hillside…
pitched towards the sea
where silver, cream and pewter
make love in strands.

It seems it is time
to strip the karmic leaf from the tree
standing in soil- guilt
foundered in pots of knowledge.

…. to see
leafless stems straining
in saps of dangerous and guile-less love…
at their very tips
lovers dropping like fruit
sodden with a grief-less ache
splattered on an earth
arched open to receive…

…. to feel
the juice of man and woman….
lovers spread like boiled jam
on the eternal pile of sunday toast…
they
edible fruits of love
sucked into the pure-fire caw
of immaculate birth…
dropping into rain, dew, spit
recycling, renewing….
all of these with their mouths open
to the sky
on those nights
when the heat beats stronger
to stray in the field
than to be thumping and restless
under a webbed roof
behind a sticky door.

It seems it is time
to get up GREAT hearts
and clamber out of the windows
of old love’s prisons
and romp…….
sweet and bloody red
across the mirror of star-pricked sky
shredded by those annihilations….
neutered by lunatic, stellar steam
burnt raw and spineless
by LOVE……………..

    You’ve woven together words that wouldn’t fit in any other context… disjointed, but somehow fluid and beautiful. Thank you.

  • Thank you Brad for your appreciation………it is dear Hafiz who inspires me to join discordant images describing the consciousness reality of beauty in all things
