Feed My Love, Elaine

Everything, alas, is an abyss, – actions, desires, dreams, Words!

 — Charles Baudelaire

And the Mad Poet cried: 

 

Feed my love, Elaine,

with your Unreason –

for whose sake I,

your loyal prey,

am more than equal to the task –

& as our kisses scintillate

into the broken yellow night,

the stray surge

of life’s heedless couplings

& the rain continue,

blindly –
