Three Poems

1

Love is
a double
thing
my freedom
in vistas
and cars
twirling
clover leafs
I can take
the dirty
highways
in me ready
to scream

twirling
twirling

the pilot(s)

Actually
I think
of you when I see
the other
plane the
two of us
neck and
neck
in the clouds.
Missing our
envelope
already
but there
it is the essence
of the sisters
dancing
madly
in the dead
man’s
clothes. The
madness
of that
death
and kissing
a swimming pool
like you
a pool
is cool
I dreamed
the pilot
was me
& my
ship never
landing
and you
in that
one not
this: perfect
bliss.

Where are you?

It’s like

I’m holding

my breath

I want to

touch your

hair & your

cunt. Is

this phone

sex.
