The Glazed Elixir Of A French Kiss

The Glazed Elixir Of A French Kiss

A Poem by DAH

your Gothic eyes


The spirited light, solar-like wind,

breath with its passion, the sun’s copious

erotic venom.


I speak of everything and all things

without caution: this noise inside my head,

layers of high-pitched harmonics,


the compressed hours between

birth and death, the heart’s heat

ascending and descending,


the end always beginning and again

your Gothic eyes. I have been here

and there, a prodigal hawk


with the flavor of blood-kisses hovering

like steam or mist or a weapon stirring

the body’s carbonic magnetic motion.


Never the sky always the silence disclosing

the stillness in death’s fantasy;life and death,

love and loss, a fatalistic dream-reel


as if two mirrors facing each other reflecting

a vacant image. I remember a faint trail

of finger prints. My impatient pulse


raced into yours: deserted passions,

like roses, each one dies the same way

our emotions mumbled


through love and into the glazed elixir

of a French kiss: In my arms you had fallen asleep

not knowing I had left.


from my second book: The Second Coming

'erotic venom' says it all ...

It's from a collection of "fragmented" poems, which is a part of a manuscript-in-progress.
