Over and around

Tuesday, July 01, 2014

The sweat dribbles down
My cheeks as I walk
Up the stiff incline of
The viaduct connecting
Hoboken with Union City,
And Union City with beyond
The rub of cloth
Against my chest and thighs
The heavy breathing,
The rhythm of movement
In this overheated air
And the taste of salt
Sweet with sweat
That drips onto my lips
And into my mouth,
This life journey,
Up and down
In and out,
Over and around,
Pressing me firmly
Against powerful urges
I cannot resist,
Nature I cannot overcome,
Though ache to surrender to,
But must keep moving
Or fall in on myself
Like an overheated sun
Twisted into a black hole
Of smoldering desire
