Once Thoroughly Skilled In The Language Of Lust - Poem by Charles Chaim Wax

Peeping at porno
downloaded three years ago
and not seen since
a horse and a woman
of course
so big
mine not even close
but besides that
what?
in his beating heart
what?
the unbearable delight
the same
trembling flesh entering Paradise
and agony later, if corruption seeps in.
Ah!
that magnificent stallion
manifesting the universal maneuver
all beings were born into
but I tell you
from the bottom of my heart
I want only
the serene camaraderie of distant stars
and their unimaginable burning
in eternal fire
until the final act of creation
collapses into a black hole
sucking both memory and revelation
into absolute gravity
and now the naked woman
flashes her Technicolor breasts
the horse high and ready for the next scene
don’t want to see it
not anymore
the Buddha sad
I ever sought such desire
or any desire.

    It would be grand if space could suck up all we have filled...and be free from desire, regret, shame, obligation...to not recall mistakes, or have them compared to what one should have done...

    But leave the horse, of course.

    It is not the Buddha
    making judgments
    about desire
    but our inner need
    to live up to
    his beaming
    and joyous
    detachment.
    A fine poem.
