The Ghosts of Love & Masturbation
unknown

Life breathes  
 1
shorter tonight  
 2
as Death leans  
 3
closer to the fire
 4
secretly fingering her pussy
 5
with one eye on your cock  
 6
patient as bones  
 7
 
 
God made wine  
 8
so that dreams  
 9
might dissolve into wishfulness
 10
while the desert ache of years  
 11
conspires with moonlight  
 12
licking shadows to gush out stars  
 13
as if the whores of heaven
 14
had always moaned  
 15
chateau 69
 16
 
 
Even the lure  
 17
of your favorite flimsies
 18
that most potent shrine  
 19
ripped eager from paradise limbs
 20
fade to the grayest muse
 21
sticky fingers sucked
 22
still burn  
 23
but the giddy taste of pink
 24
no more than sparks  
 25
vanquished blue black  
 26
back to the darkest womb  
 27
 
 
A million actors wait
 28
to groan the shit out of empty
 29
trapping lust in the blindest alley  
 30
hornier than warts on a natterjack
 31
craving bare dollar rain  
 32
from your credit card  
 33
before they'll sink their teeth  
 34
in the ass of your screen
 35
 
 
So where are the ghosts  
 36
if the first time  
 37
and the last time we fucked
 38
float like homeless spirits  
 39
returning helpless to dust
 40
to join the last short sweepings  
 41
from a dive full of hope
 42
lost out on Savannah wilds
 43
only flesh re-plundered
 44
for a can of beans
 45
 
 
Out of a thousand dirty weekends  
 46
only the shortest softest grunt
 47
marries the wind  
 48
to a squirm of hope
 49
