Desire (for Charley on his Birthday)


Recommended Posts





like fire

lights up the world.


Banners unfurled

and toes upcurled

we walk the wire


with equanimity.

An infinity

of glowing light


underlies the night

and we know

from long ago


the fire of desire

can turn. And burn

us into anonymity.

Drown your sorrows in drink, by all means, but the real sorrows can swim
