In Love With Venus


I am not jealous
Of the furrows and blisters
Colonizing your acquiescent lips

Nor do I lie awake
Tormented by every man
That trespassed
On your charitable bronze

Nor am I envious
Of my own gender
That discolored your world
And bleached your dreams

Come to me, my goddess
With open arms
And gaping thighs

Desecrate my loneliness
Lay claim to my body
Inhabit my world

You and I
With no signatures on paper
No pledges or vows
Just our triumphant bodies
In a journey fueled by a mythical symbiosis
Galloping to a glorious sunset

And if by chance
We do find love
We will count our blessings
As we thank the gods

When the union of our bodies
Was the quintessential compass
And our fragile hearts
Were the true journeymen

And love was
Our accidental destination

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
