closer than you think…

closer than you think

i was telling
aunt bea
that a friend
of mine
suggested
that I come
to her temple
so i could
experience
ecstasy
aunt bea
said
honey
if you want
ecstasy
head on down
to reverend brown’s
revival meetn’
and
before
you can say
harikrishna
his amens
and
the lord saith to you
will have you
moving into places
where
you can only go
with
a divine guide
child
that church
becomes
the gateway
to heaven
there is no doubt
where you’ve been
when
you come out
for
the world
has changed
and
so have
you
and child
that
is
ecstasy

passion…

passion

come
dance with me
to music
most have forgotten
pulsating
like
two hearts
pressed
against naked skin
while
eyes
with hunger
stare into
reflections
of desire
desire
that would
make one
pass through
the seven gates
for such
ecstasy
come
dance with me
dance
with
me

a child bride’s question….

a child bride's question

what do these taliban leaders fear
a woman’s soft breast and quill… firmer in bed than them

some quality time together:..

quality time together

yes
you’ve been
struggling with schedules
balancing work
traveling to seminars
juggling client social activities
and
i know
you requested
all appointments
be canceled
for your
annual
family day
but
death
refused
to wait

soldiers of the gods…

soldiers of the gods

these soldiers
do not march
to patriotic music
blaring
with every step
they take
nor
do they
kiss the ground
walked upon
for each day
they breathe
such
symbolic acts
are found
only
in books
and
tell you little
of who
they are
if you
do not see
their beliefs
then you will stay blind
to their thoughts
and
to the reason
they die
