Amazing Love Life
I dedicate this love swallow to you and fly it
From the balcony of San Jose
Past the empty chapels of the Desire Ocean.
My praying hands are cold,
One eye open, the other close,
My flapping lids sewed down to my cheek.
Time, the invisible dragon, keeps its head
And fan deep in the beloved life.
Reason blinded me, banished me.
I fight the liar in me, selective Desire Ocean,
My waked nightmares 'dreamless sleep.'
Blind, I turned on a musical watch,
For the minute hand. I hear the right time of hours
When I listen to my television play church bells.
Secret this, secret that.
I have another clock- wolves howling and dogs barking.
Now the invisible dragon swims in the Desire Ocean.
I look out of my door to see you
As if you were not in my love life
And all my other orchid flowers.
I swear at the feet of the dead who like me
And the living who heal me that the least voice,
A page turning, whips me. I owe my lovely voice,
This love swallows, to you, because I lived
Most of my life, an amazing love, in your deaf house.
I pull open one of my eyes like the jaws of a dragon.
