At half past midnight of a memory
where beginning ends in trial by
woman, trial by man, the pains of
silence tap their absent-minded
fingertips on the life, once yours,
that maybe you possessed -but itís
fifty-fifty maybe. You find yourself
lonely and delicious on the cusp
of blessing made of music.
You care no more what to give or
what is given, for you are radiant
with equilibrium, and the voice you
hear confides some secret distance
in your heart, some long ago, some
place you walk up to music, like
music itself, and beware no more.
You hear singing, you hear the
goods of true, and the winds of
morning perfume keep blowing
your way. Happy rules the joint;
you cannot dance, but you dance.
And somewhere between a love
song and an overdose of souvenirs,
not looking back but here alone, you
are wise to love, and comp your
blood cells easy as she sings. You
rest your unwashed eyes where the
elegant fingers of night embrace your
sleep and drink her singing in, like
vials of spunky champagne. Then
drunk with easy steps and silly with
wisdom, you dance into love on all
the deepening seas around you.
