Earth Moved




















Enough of these masturbatory
fantasies – sources of dry wit
mix better with sultry praise


The earth’s moving is more
a celebratory appraisal than
uncritical acclamation


So clouds of innuendo float
free in agile subtlety – going
where the wind pleases


And there I dream the earth
moved under you and I
without a tear turned grey
