V. Six Caryatids

No words tonight–

quiet, no sound,

no light, nowhere bound,

come with me–step light

without ground. Wet,

soft, sweetly spell

out the words you spilt

in ecstasy sweat


on catlicks an’

bleeding nailpecks,

speeding Heart’s reflex:

in, out, begin again.

Move, squeeze, bite, kick,

bend your back, crack–

popping, gushing back

times oceanic


to fire assuage.

begs casual-

tasting, sexual-

poetry, language

for the deaf, dumb.

Make love on a

rasa tabula,

Love, and love will come.
