The Landscape Of Love - Poem by allan who

and this wind sails over
the disquieted sea and rambles
like the new clad bridegroom
seeking her in the horizon

and in the vastness of your dark sky
like the fermented berry that spilled
and colored its dread locks and curls
i lie down shrunk and shriveled as the stars

and when i danced in the prancing moonlight of you
the beetles of the night brazed
onto myself as some palm, lifting its murmur
onto my ears, i thought i heard you

and in solo soliloquies to the sea
i ascribed my experiences with you
for then the beach concocted sandcastles
upon which i perched your memories

and i leave in a train that trundles through the rails
that are cold and frigid in your absence
foreknowing forever that your presence
will still linger in this empty coaches

and mazily i walk over this cosmos
a jaywalker across the stars and the planets
drawing my telescopic gaze in search of your stellar eyes
when you bloomed and sprouted as the orchid in my orchard
