Monday 23 October 2023


yanked away by a bread

that made a gulf of my fire,

i become a lonely cold breeze

seeking a baptism of heat. 

you come with a soft sun

beaming the butter of my groin.

alas! am an ocean of phallus

steaming a creamy lust of love. 

a man must feed his hunger

when a sweetest sleek sin sits

a very delicious plate of sex

with an aroma of holy bed. 

and so i rise a praying pestle,

throbbing my forgiveness strong;

i rise a pleading rock pestle

to pound my sin hard and long. 

i become a pardoned mount

with a joyful pain growing much

of the flood of tears in a home,

of the burning peace of a soul.
