can we endure

Posted to Action Poetry




can i stand the pulse
of your desperate
dancing drumming in my
deepest dreams

can i bear to run
my hands across your
weeping skin and to
spasm your scarred soul
with my orgasmic yells?

can i stand the
painful desire i spill
over you
you over me
as we make love
out of words

or to run trembling
through your
swollen darkness?

can i bear the sound
of your heart knocking
on the floor at night

or to touch your lips
in a language
you do not know?

can i bear

can you stand

can we endure
each other's
spell and dream
and pass
the smell of mint
from the ruin?
