That Absent Minded Kiss That You Done - Poem by Robert Rorabeck

I see you running with your coffins every day,
Like the paleness in the throat of a cottonmouth
Come up to bask in the sunlight of
Lascivious housewives topless on the easement,
And I’ve been driving my canoe instead
Of attending math and history,
And you light upon my hand just as happy as some
Kind of pestilent and morbid flower,
And kiss me for a very long throw,
And giving your venoms into my blood like a backwards
Bank robbery,
So slowly I lie down and moan your name forever
Even after you have slipped your tail back in the
Water to eat the folklore of white rats in the
And Eve get fat and naked off her cherry red apple
By various degrees,
While I lie down in the wooden slit like a sliver under the
Skin of the sun,
And my heartbeats like an asthmatic devil from
That absent minded kiss that you done.
