We boys casually pal’d around before we got down to making love
In the Beautiful waste of days in the empty nothing that had become our lives.
We then burst from our confining clothes to be Naked,
playing cowboys on the pallet,
Searching our shells for something other than
These lonely little moments.
We eked out solace like we were
Digging in poisoned ground
Peace was not other than fitful sleep,
broken by portent nightmares of us
Stumbling toward what wants us to fade from each other.
I wake again,
In this little room with a window over an alley,
No more cigarettes and lover is gone…
I roll over, to return to sleep again
in hopes that I might find
those days with you somewhere in the
ether of my ecstatic dreams...
