milking stars


Man cannot milk a star that shines
in galaxies in milky ways,
but can milk love, when he entwines,
unstar-crossed, trying to amaze,
the woman he attempts to enter
when she is ready, being wet,
to let thim penetrate her center,
where she has dragged her net
to capture lights that emanate
from all the pores of his excited
body, shining, when they copulate
in starlight, being unbenighted.

Inspired by a poem by Anne Sexton:

When Man Enters Woman

When man
enters woman
like the surf biting the shore
again and again
and the woman opens her mouth in pleasure
and her teeth gleam.
Like the alphabet,
Logos appears milking a star
and the man
inside of woman
ties a knot
so that they never will
again be separate,
and the woman
climbs into a flower
and swallows its stem
and Logos appears
and unleashed their rivers

This man
this woman
with their double hunger
have tried to reach though
the curtains of God
and briefly they have,
though God,
in His perversity
unties the knot.

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?

But mark the fate of faces;
