Midnight Rendezvous Poem by Frederick Kesner

Midnight Rendezvous

Rating: 2.6


`



Join me in this boat of drunkenness,
Come with me and we shall both be drunk.
Let's sway beside what we think ourselves,
Swerving as the waves swell beneath us;
Lifting us to where lonely sounds warp,
While many other things become clear.


Come upon my mind, your tongue in mine,
And utter words that rend this turmoil;
The sound of madness not to be stilled,
Our silent voices, raging waters.


The world will list to one side of us
And back to the other in one beat.
Ghosts wail in the howling of the wind;
The sweat streams from a thousand souls,
They fling their drunken bodies upon us;
We feel only their salty wetness.


All at once they crash against this boat;
Their breath will chill the flaming sea,
Then drift back again to drowsy depths,
As our oars cut through this heady wine.

Thank you for reading and responding. Your feedback has validated the attempt at effecting a rhythmic 'bob' as if traveling upon a body of water blended with the coronary 'lub-dubbing' of the chest.
