calm & mellow-
nine glass oceans of
blue-gold & yellow...

let me tilt your head back slow,
fill your mouth with lamplight.
let the texture taste your tongue-
lyric syrup insight

words and touch teach me to know;
budding romance still seems trite.
but then you speak, breath from your lung-
& the stars shine out of spite.

violin & cello,
intrigue's voices- they
scream & bellow

sliding along strings-
the sexual chocolate sings

of the infinite & minute
and all else in shy angst's pursuit

of the sweat that collects
on the nape of lovers necks

of the awkward peace
when the movements cease

of all that is calm & mellow,
amid oceans blue-gold & yellow...
