Night is sleeping
dreams laid open eyes
of a troubled peace, unawakened
I am sleepless with sleep incense
your absent pheromones
Clasp a sad midnight, (h)our love song
my hormones gone to bed
lover. faraway. into dateless nights.
reflecting, look at you: equivocal, misleading, beautiful
crowded obvious questions of your whereabouts
a treetop cat’s sighing madness —
Echo cries, my absence
missing you, moon, a memory
moan-wearing your ghostly sweetness.
to [murder her;]
to [stab her gray heart,]
to [my bloody Hamlet pain]!

Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary. -- Sir Cecil Beaton (1904-1980) English photographer
