A Mad Man In Mad Ways

I am a madman,
And I have mad fantasies.
I avidly think of you
In the strangest ways.
I want to see you
In your bedroom look,
Your elbow room trance.
I want to picture your
Out of bed imagery.
The way your hair sticks out
In disarray from the heavy
Sculpting of slumber and
The mattresses.
I want to be one with your sin -
Your sin of telling the truth
And eating it.
I am obscured.
I want to be the dog
That buries your bones
And paint them with a palette
Of chauvinism.
Such freedom
Such potent energies.
I told you, I am a madman,
And as a mad man,
I am very mad in rummaging ways
Like that of a wan mockingjay,
I want to picture you as a willow tree
Where I perch in a solitary meeting.
But perhaps, the maddest fantasy
I have is that
I want to be the soliloquy
That surrounds you.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
