Devant Gardener

 

"Wir müssen wieder vom Baum der Erkenntnis essen, um in den Stand der Unschuld zurückzufallen."

Liar's Gospel

I choose to lie because

I wish to void

the imperfection of being.

Flawless vistas compel 

inexorable subterfuge.


It is a perpetual battle

against becoming vestigial.

Every lie a jewel,

multifaceted,  

capturing riches.

Aswim

In tones of night and honey

I'm sap flowing over clocks' hands

that tempers time sweet and sticky.

With firm strokes I swim 

beauty's sea cresting... 

Her eyes glint

deep below 

like shark's teeth

mocks moon glow.

Sensual Heat Climes

 

"Its characteristic peculiarity lies in the power with which it subjects to the mind and to its ideas the sensuous element..."

Morphic Slumber

...bound in the cestus of beauty, streaming out blithely into the beauty embracing repose...demonically absorbing everything, gathering all into its Saturnian poise...

Kantian Imp

If Kant has a Nocturnal Emission 

must he inform the Constable?

An imperative commission,

because antinomies annul autonomy.


Faust's dog was no Poodle


But a black Dachshund 

Immanuel walks punctually

across the King's mount daily

as motley Owls soar aloft.

Air

Like pollen in the air

she tickles my nose hair

and wherever I may lay

she lays.

Heaven's Majesty

The constellate crown 

blooms brilliant to sight

a crystalline bow

of radiant smile

above Hunter's shield.

Her stellar tiara

waxes finely swift 

in starstruck eyes.

Winter's Cusp

Plumes of silver flit

with crisp gusts 'cross

blue scrolls above


Light hews, gold with grey,

as bonny birds trill 

sullen on stark limbs.

Mocking Muses

When words play cruel coquettes

and you're drawn to stubs

like puddle soaked cigarettes

the glacial hush snubs.     


Where is the tinder

for sonorous bonfires?

Pegasus' canter

sears what inspires.


It stills the inner ear

with apathy's drone

and the dumbshow vents clear

the muted chill of bone.
