they look
like my past lovers
dressed from head
to toe in black,
a rabbit
stomach wearing
thin upon
the tarmac, pink
dry five petaled flowers
that i don't
care much for now,
an empty womb
a crypt, the darkness
slipping in

without romance,
the boatman
jumping ship again,
his bones soft
and adrift,
a vein, a needle
and a weight
against my chest,
the golden sun and silver
moon, the beds
inside saint peter's

(they sound like my heart in the night)

I want to just say that you write SO well that I think the level of thoughtfulness and creativity you put into your work is something that more of today's poets should aspire to. I write with people sometimes and I would love to write with you. If you're anything like me, you probably visualize your words and I can't imagine what you must see in your mind as you write these things.
