book of longing


ah. that.
that's what i was so disturbed
about this morning:
my desire has come back, and i want you again.
i was doing fine,
i was above it all.
the boys and girls were beautiful
and i was an old man, loving everyone.
and now i want you again,
i want your absolute attention,
your underwear rolled down in a hurry
still hanging on one foot,
and nothing on my mind
but to be inside
the only place
that has
no inside,
and no outside.
