Intercourse II Improvivsation 02 12 2012


The beginning would wait
The first could not
Run the course from the ancient
To American histories of fool's powers
Life hopes with prayer
Watch at the coming of a poetry
Lay acceptance naturally covered
from the cold -red philter incense
Breathes the herb
White turnip rooted stone
Warm grounds bed blossoms
To rest together in naked wet
And hold the cemetery's dead… her
Hands are straps her thighs are ropes
They comfort anticipation and
Overwhelm stroking -in the gasps
Confessed
The swell in the channel's breach
Tolerates informed amplification
From the depths of the well naked
And tempered
Touches of ancientness wears
through every
African's skin -ages from whence
Came leaving by funerals of departure
The presence she lays matches
Her mind's dispatches
Subtle messages her body
Attaches to mine -leaves the yoke
Of child -fields confront us both
And I for her protect them with mystery
Life wills another poetry -love in the
Intercourse
Mysteries and marriage when
Poetry marries the hope of love
The first could wait
Beginning could not.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
