Love Song #87
I love you, I said, but it is not enough.
Around the next corner the darkness will embrace me. The night will
sing like Eurydice,
to Ulysees’ sailors.
I will drown looking for paradise
on the way home.
When my dick gets hard.
All the pain in the history of the world
Won’t make it right.
Not on this slag heap,
not this night.
I don’t want to need you ever again,
I found love once, at a turning
where slept the slouching beast.
There is something out there.
It is more than nothing.
It has come to matter to me.
