Poetry As Constellation - Poem by Warren Falcon

for Karthik

'...descend, and of the curveship lend a myth to God.' - Hart Crane



You hear

'consolation'

as 'constellation'

when I explain

a poem is a

consolation

work that I

am compelled

to

as a lover

is to

traces

pointing

beyond sighs

and windows

where

Arcturus

stands

poised

wheeling

in night's

patient

round

his arrow

strung

forever

ready to

swiftly fly

as am I

along the

spatial curve

of your

arching

thighs


and this

too

your taut

restrained

breath held

between

Perpetua's

swollen

lips of

praise



If you

could only

see what

I see in

your eyes

when the

arrow

finally

flies

    Thank you, Wendy. Glad you caught the heat which is what I wanted the poem to build up to in its 'fallling text-arrow' downward from the wheeling sky toward receptive horizon...am going to tweak the spacing of it here and there and then leave Arcturus to his own advances...

    If you enjoyed this poem you may also find my poem, Archeology - What The Stele Says 'Upon Taking A Much Younger Lover', somewhat 'warming' :) .

    Phew! It's toasty in here... Beautifully executed! .. Sultry... yet Serene..
    Nothing more romantic than gazing the stars on a clear night... Move over Cupid... Arcturus is in town...

    Bravo...
