Peris is Livery: libérez l'abat-jour

Songs to Joannes

I

Spawn   of   Fantasies
Sifting the appraisable
Pig Cupid   his rosy snout
Rooting erotic garbage
"Once upon a time"
Pulls a weed   white star-topped
Among wild oats    sown in mucous membrane
I would    an    eye in a Bengal light
Eternity in a sky-rocket
Constellations in an ocean
Whose rivers run no fresher
Than a trickle of saliva
 
These are suspect places
 
I must live in my lantern
Trimming subliminal flicker
Virginal    to the bellows
Of experience
          Colored  glass.
