Constant Craving: Gogyohka sequence

Constant Craving:  Gogyohka sequence


1.
No one,
I was alone.
Alone painting dusk
and dawn.
Hush lover, hush.

Whisper
when you’re distant
from the formula
of your conceited
pride.

2.
The visions return
without threads
or needles, only the echo 
of poetic voices—
my dead are restless

3.
tighten
the farewell sash. 
Night fog is over.
Lover, set aside garlands,
the rum and drums.

4.
Your legs
are wide open;
a night of unfinished
buses crashing
on a golf course.

5.
I close my eyes
frightened
of the empty beer cans,
packed
in that locked closet.

6.
Curl on my lips.
Hide from the world
in the voice of the wind.
Lengthen yourself 
in my daydreams.

7.
We were accidental tourists
caught in the conversation
of kisses,
pure harmony of arms
under the effects of a starry night.
