Street Song 6: Once Again Until Once More

We stand here together,
Once again,
Hand-in-hand and everything is beautiful.
We talk and we laugh just like before.
And then I see you talkin’ to that dude
That you know I got beef with.
So now I got questions,
And you givin’ the rolly-eye?!
And we back arguing
Just like we used to be.
Is this why we got back together?!
To yell and scream once again?
Until once more we realize what
We’re doin’ to each other,
And then it’s “Honey, I’m sorry”
And love is love, holdin’ hands and shit.
Man, I don’t know what I’da done
If I lost you this time,
But I didn’t so everything is cool
Once more until once again
Ya girls is tellin’ you that they seen me
In the mall with my son’s moms
And now you trippin’
Know what I mean? Tryin to flip on me?
Don’t you see the game is on?!
And Vick runnin' the ball?!
And anyway, my cousin said he think he thought
He saw you and your hoochie ass friends
In the club, you know that night you
Said your Moms was sick?
So what the deal?
Know what, matter fact, fuck that,
I’m goin back to my Moms an shit,
Get me a job, save some loot an
Get my own spot once more
Til once again I’m sittin’ here
Dealing with these girls that don’t mean
Shit to me just to keep my
Heart from feelin’ so damn empty.
Damn, I hear your voice in the wind
And I wish I could have you back
Once again.

In your eyes, your smile, your arms,
All that I ever was
Became all that I ever wanted to be;
All my distance and despair transformed,
Replaced by comfort and safety.
I cannot say that my heart has gone out to you,
Because I cannot say that my heart has ever
Been anywhere but with you.
All I do know,
And pledge to with my dying breath,
Is that had there never been Love in all Creation,
It would have been born the day I found you.

Element: Earth


We are foundation,
Holding up the Heavens
At the same time that we support one another’s weight.
You rise over me, only to drop again,
Again and again.
We plow, nourishing the earth
With the joy of Seed.
I dig into you with urgency, a hunger
For your harvest that grows of its own accord.
We live to reap, to grow, to move snakelike in
Strong, moist soil,
Living to die and dying to live again
As we nourish.
My stalk grows in your tunnels,
Knowing your yielding loamy moisture
As you continue to climb the tree rising
From the center of me,
As my mountain thrusts into your valley,
Bringing life, giving life.
I lift you, turn you so that we give of our bounty,
Life’s mud coating our faces before
I rise again, now to the world beneath the world,
Driving my plow into the rich soil,
Loving the resistance, loving the mud,
Loving the dust, loving the dirt
As we dig deep,
Shovel throbbing, earth moving,
And drinking deep
And shake the world
As we nourish.

Love-Call (Beyond Hyperbolic Vertex)

I watch you, again,
As your sleeping soul rests,
And I feel my heart swelling
Again with Love for you
Almost against my will.
There is so much I’d pray for
As I stand here,                                                                  
But all my prayers are gone.
I asked God to let me find you and He did,
I sold my soul back to Him,
All my prayers (dreams) gone away,
To have you, and here you are.
If your understanding were mine,
You’d see my heart surrounding you-
This Love is all I have
You are the only Heaven I hope for
So I watch you, again,
As your sleeping soul rests
And long for the answer to my prayers
To answer my Love-call.

Element: Silver


We reflect in silent moments,
Growing together like moon in sky,
While we chain each other in the freedom
Of mutual, untarnished Gravity.
We free the night
As we conduct all the electricity in our hearts
To our bodies and lips to meet in
Perfect circuit.
We are mirrors into the soul of Life,
Reflecting in our passion, our lust,
Our very being, the inherent desire in the
Song of all Days;
Knowing that, as I see your face captured,
In each drop of sweat that falls
From my forehead to your breast,
Even in Lust, the heart pauses to breathe.
I reflect upon the sweet pleasures
Of your tongue 
As well as the sweet pain of lonely nights
When you are not near.
We reflect,
Our hands greater utensils, precious,
Bringing our sensual repast to lips waiting,
Tongues flicking and backs undulating in sterling need
Of all the things we are,
All the things we know,
All that we bring out in one another
As we reflect Love
In infinite repetition.

Sweet Reverie

I watched you, while rainclouds gathered
In the sky above us.
And you were so beautiful as you sat,
Unconscious of my attention-
Innocent to my affection-
That my mind created for us
Grand castles surrounded by endless gardens,
Where we could forever escape these lives
And live loved and loving from now til forever;
Or perhaps where I could at least
Hold you in my arms, smelling you
Bathing my soul in your scent
And letting my heart race in the nearness of you.
But while I sit here dreaming,
You stand and walk away
Scattering the remnants of my fantasy
And ending my sweet reverie.

Element: Water


Our flesh ripples as we touch
And surf the waves of our growing desire,
Taken like ships at sea, rising and plunging,
Loving the depths even while we seek the crest,
As we flow.
We are this sea, bathing in each other,
Bringing moisture with moisture
While we caress, tasting first with our fingers
Later with tongues, always in our souls.
We nourish the world in our rain
As it flows from us,
Physical and spiritual,
First sweat attaching cheek to thigh,
Lips to breast, my hand to the back of your neck
As I wrap your hair in my fist,
Pushing you away even as I pull you close,
I feel your tide at both ends of my body,
Then the deeper fluids of our minds
Rise to wash us away, me diving into your ocean,
Swimming in this ecstasy as I bend you over,
Moving in the stream of your consciousness.
I ride your current, deep in your waters
Loving the undertow and sweetly resisting the undertow.
We inundate this world and its concerns
As our tides rise and fall,
As our waves crash, foaming and drenching the land
Of our beings,
As we flow.

Element: Air


This we create.
My breath, your breath
Joining, spinning, combining, becoming
Much more than our words;
The sweet thoughts of God;
The fluid we breathe as we inhale each other,
Love-filling our lungs, as we soar
Together through the morning,
Dew drying on our skin as we part the clouds,
Change the weather with our regard,
Sweep the leaves of the Worldtree ever onward
With the exhalation of our desire;                                  
As we rise.
We move soulward, on the wind of need,
Being the air hearts breathe
As our own hearts beat to Heat-music,
Making me rise against you,
Your nipples rough against my chest,
Breath fire against each other’s necks
As we rise.
We spin this world,
We blow, we swirl,
Lifting all lovers as we fly overhead,
Winds of sensuality becoming
A tornado of passion, of desire, of Love
Taking heed neither of reason nor responsibility,
Not while we kiss, not as you lift your breast to me,
Not as I suckle as we ascend,
Lifting everything with us in a spiral
That presses us even closer.
As I kiss down your body,
You shiver at my breath on you
As your incense rises to my lips
My hands moving along your lower back
As I lick you, tasting the first salt
Of your sweetness
As we spin, as we revolve,
As we rise.

Reciprocal Identities (Lean on Me)

(I am 1/you)
Let this arm be the standard,
My soul the fortress,
The rock, that shelters you from the sky
I will take all you have to give
Giving in return comfort in the night.
I am yours, and bow to you in this,
My all given into your respite,
Your solace.
I am the shelter from the past,
The easer of the now,
Tree standing against the wind.
And if ever, whenever,
The world is too much with you,
Come to me
And know the comforts of my Mathematics.
(You are 1/me)

Blessed Union

This hangs between us like stardust
Dazzling but subtle,
Warm like God’s smile on us.
Can’t you see it
Shimmering, rippling with every touch?
This is the Love
That God made us for.
Like snowflakes by crescent moon,
We are beautiful together.
Brought together by Gravity,
Kept close by Magnetism,
We are complete like day and night
And bound by blessings.

Status Migrainosus II: The Unlovely Smell of Oranges

She says "Dance a little dance with me".
She sings "Dream a little dream,"
And again I fall into the dark.

She holds me close as we dance,
My oldest friend,
As close as my memories of her
That stretch back in my mind almost as far
As the face of the quiet Hunter,
He who has always been my goal and my goad.
She holds me tight in the dark
And it is hot and we dance and we spin and spin.

She says "Dance a little dance with me.
Dream a little dream".
She sings in a language she has taught me
And again I fall into the dark.

My oldest friend,
As close as the lie in a lover's kiss
As we dance and spin and spin
In the darkness where everyone passing through 
Is limned in fading light
And the rising dark of our dance is
Intimate in every way.
We dance in the dark and know nothing of the world.

She sings only for me
And this is always her song:
"Dance a little dance with me, dream a little dream".
And all duty and desire fall away
As I fall into the dark.

Her perfume is oranges, likely blood,
As sweet and as sharp as Love's first kiss,
And it envelopes me as we dance,
Scenting my reality as we spin and spin
Through the waves and the valleys and the hot.
My oldest friend and I,
Together here at the bottom of the dark,
Where the world is  a memory
And there is only the dance.

I know that one day she will call,
In a voice of marmalade and cold wet earth,
And she will sing "Dance a little dance with me,"
And through my tears I will dance;
She will sing "Dream a little dream,"
And I know only her embrace;
And she will whisper, into the cups of my ears,
"Stay here, a while with me, in the dark,"
And all of my desires
And all of my hopes
And all of my breaths-
All of my equations- will fall to zero,
To the smell of oranges
As we spin and spin
And then spin no more.

Water and Air (As Years Rush By)

 Come let me spin you through these night clouds majestic,
While we sip glasses of chilled moonlight
And leave footprints in the stardust
I breathe only your smile.
As the years rush by.
Your body held ever in my arms,
My face floating in the seas of your eyes,
Our Love never away from each other’s hearts,
We shimmer in our own heat.
As the years rush by.
A bright present and golden future
That for us will never be a yesterday,
As all thoughts of sadness are replaced
By a Love that will never stray
As the years rush by.
So, as angels sing all around us,
We will dance eternity away
Under this night sky that never ends
With this devotion that will always stay.

The Riddle of Sand

Angel of Broken Stones
“So heavy the burden I bring with me from the past,
I doubt that I should make these vows for the future.
                                                     – The Tale of Genji

I am the eater of days,
Father of the Indefinite roads of Time,
Consuming hourglass moments and sundial liquor.
As I let the ages run down a throat
Dry with ancestors dust and the heat of being,
I swallow sand and time,
Drinking dust
Drinking dust
Tasting in it steel and blood,
Diamonds and lead-
Sweet sepulcher wine.
I bring a song of kings and battles                                              
Sung in the voice of the outer world,
War and warriors all fall forgotten, water upon the sand
While my wings beat
And stir the other side of the light.
I am the arbiter of dreams,
Sender of the dark sundrinkers
That sail through the cold, impotent ashes
Left after the living fire of the Childe of Night
Turned the men of dust into the dust of men.
We seek the jewels of the desert, the roses of the sand.
