FIRES OF VENUS: “Erotomania”

200465990-001

EROTOMANIA

It goes like this

We wind each other

Like clocks gone crazy

Whipping bands of burnt sienna

Coil around her arms

Her thighs her wrists her stomach

Our mouths

Finally freeze, learn words again

Giant pictures

Looming above highways

Show us how it’s done

Books fly off shelves

Pages peel themselves apart

Spread flat stretch back lie

Down we breathe we need to attain

Sea level oh my

Christ

Never knew for a second

Come here come now please

Because

When we touch

I can’t tell the

Difference  between the TV screen

And the real and urgent dream

The need the now now now the

Window so cold and the

Video blue and the lips

The lips vermillion, I,

Oh, I, I, I…

Boston, 1989
