Treasure Island

Randy Resh

(April,1967 / Toronto, Canada)

Birthday Presents


Mine Beloved's birthday
shrinking feeling tad bit guilty

ours a tentative pencil arrangement
circumstantial conditions affording

and you radiant as ever
sun dress gleam-beam brilliant beauty

clearest light flood Julian day
sublimest nightshade
blinds draw sway

double-wrapped presents presents
privy dreamy dusky musky
peachy perfume play

and how you never cease
to confound astound me

beauteous beneficent baffling being
every woman and then some she

we the wise of tact and discretion
convention's demands so laden

contain conduct ourselves accordingly
upon such journey's returning

the giggly young couple
beside us on the shuttle

stupid cupid coddle cuddle
shameless belligerent ebullience bursting

parting snicker I crack upon leaving
brittle mask dam-burst thirst of envy

all the while privately knowing
harbour savouring

your scent stamp floral trail intoxicant
incense rapture petals retrieving
vaulted souvenir treasure marking me

i will wait another day
perhaps two
before showering

And pays us but with earth and dust;
