Le feu?

 

est-ce le feu

dans vos ventre tristes

vos fronts fulmineux où

l’orage ne jamais plus semble passer

ils nous ont menti  tu me dis

maintnant tu

te tais

 Passion

 

all consuming fulfilling

emptying same time

hurts so much

Rain drops

drenching

ecstasy

fire

 Without wanting?

 

Passion without wanting.

Not possible!

So completely liberating.

Are you sure?

Defocused.

You are joking!

All extending and it feels so good.

You are kidding yourself!

I’m curious

 

I’m curious

I observe

all that we do           

or not do

thoughts and dreams

I mirror them

through

thought sculpture

astonished

I observe

for I’m curious

 Recherches

                         

un vieux aristocrat me disait

Elles ne pensaient pas,

en ce temps là.

 ‘I took me a filipina wife’

 

watch out

when

one of those days

she

will come to wonder

why

you introduce her

to your friends as 

‘my filipina girl’

and walk

straight out of

your house

in disgust
