Lady From Elsewhen

an illicit kiss in jersey fucking city
sent his gyroscope akimbo one night
and she knows something which you cannot
if you believe it merely a trifle

inflection points in biography maps
scurry into dark recess under scrutiny
like shy but menacing cold-eyed eels
biding moments to deliver destiny’s sting

yoni not unlike the tongues of cows
insisting, not inviting, clutching raw, velcro
leaves an imprint beyond all wishing’s pull:
seed revealed once these bodies decompose

  1. Fascinating. “seed revealed once these bodies decompose” reminds me of the properties of the jack pine cone that needs the heat of a wild fire to release its seeds.

    1. I’ll have to remember that image, thanks. I recall watching some nature special about this once, in BC, how the forest and seas cooperate in mysterious ways.
