Ballad (Parmi colonnes)
So long them ago, so long ago,
So tunes among the ruins:
(a) poor loony villain off to Angers
in sharded malignity
cursing and blaspheming
she in clashing register with punk hair
looking merry window in Japanese
beyond grand compassion.
Riding one in front, one in rear
on dear absent-minded mount (bumpity, bumpity)
biding time with Peking duck
murderer of orgasms in small hot drips
with curling lips sans mercy.
some small gesture in parting, amants martirs,
unthrifty say--a last hot meal
before the chair
with champagne vintaged
in tears and troubles.
owning up at least like honest honeyed cat
our desiring machines well-laved in one long sure purr
cheek to cheek like fur-bearing mammals with pure shaved skin
