life in a minor key

09 Nov


life in a minor key


minor chords are apathy

mauve forlornness in cue


bringing it down by available means

just another sluggard drinking coffee

becoming an erection, becoming orgasm

static, stable at null

all i would think if i could think

your skin was lilac


in fact, i dreamt the other night

and there were two of you

the stubble on my chin

finds it’s way


along your stomach

along your thigh

above your knee


the glorious anatomy

giving me time to wake up

time to film it with my mind

i forget so easy now

it’s good to keep a growing catalog

something to analyze and discuss

something to remember you by

like a funny anecdote about a martyr
