Some nights I sleep with my dress on
In the garden of waters a spirit of stone.
The cool October night
Somewhere west of the back volcanoes.
I’ve seen people die of money.
Where the hell do these people come from?
Their fathers were surgeons and vice-presidents.
Their mothers were psychologists and counselors.
had I known how to play them
had I known how to let
them play me
A clock stitched from will,
chronologs which hours to kill
and take from seventy springs a score,
it only leaves me fifty more.
But you are inside your breathing now
as you were taught. Their faces twitch
turn red as stutterers. The astounded soul
hangs for a moment bodiless and simple
she pins her sleeve to the dead
my sleeve soaked by the automatic spray
God, I have been looking for you
