Random Poem:

Moments Desired
Virgil

Sensations called forth
 1
 
 
A ceramic idol found
 2
        in an old jasmine terrace
 3
 
 
Each of her cornrows a rounded egg,
 4
        a door to a thousand lives
 5
 
 
Making love in the vineyard
 6
        of the Sun King
 7
 
 
The decisive, glorious victory.
 8
        Armada sails arcing into oblivion
 9
 
 
To watch a lunar silhouette engulf the sun
 10
        alongside Thales—
 11
 
 
"It is
 12
        As you predicted"
 13
 
 
A friend's interest
 14
        in a book you cherish
 15
 
 
Its return greeted
 16
        with dinner and song
 17
 
 
Experience: all kinds of song
 18
        drunk on, absorbed into now
 19
 
 
There are millions
 20
        I do not remember—
 21
 
 
Moments I ask for
 22
        scars left by pleasure alone
 23
