Verse: Lucubrations

Would you be
so bold as to
remove those
broken embraces
from your sleepy sofa
they are bereft
of lust

I hunger
for no kiss
that cannot first
compromise my
conviction or
my composure

just look how
subtly the day
is threaded with
the slender needle
of invidious night

it has loosed
the sirens
that urgently
serenade us

they are obscene
in their yearning
they will come
for us
one day soon
but not yet

in the meantime
we could reconsider
and conspire
help me sweep up
the dust of
this meagre meal
to extingush
the candles
and we'll listen
for the ocean
it is not
so far away
