Bohemian Nights

What is love?
I venture for the search,
Hovering above the restrictions,
Masquerading feelings,
Packing the streets and theaters.

In the shadows of the city lights,
The subtle touch of elation,
Tempered by the night’s venom.
A parade of tamers lurking to fragment dreams,
To seek the hook for their puppet master.

There’s always a cage for joyous affairs,
Some subjugation of our bohemian nights.

But I still reach possessively for the moment, as the pendulum strikes.
Eternity vibrant in your eyes,
Unwavering in my faith that love is untamable.

Simple Lovemaking Directions

1. Slowly … melt the pole of the Frozen North.

2. Travel and/or dock along the borders, consisting of

the West Coast and the Eastern Seaboard.

3. Move inland, flooding the Deep South.

4. Abandon or go down with the ship.

5. Drown, even, if you must. Or …

6. Float safely skyward toward the heavens.
