Wheat Ears – Selected Poems

Artemis

Artemis graced me with abundant verdure 

the days when

I celebrated glorious, free

ancient spring charms

          ravines with oleanders

          deep chasms filled with

          the song of Eros

a meaning as easy to decipher

as kissing the soft mound

          of a woman

          time of vernal equinox

truth no less important than

my sexual arousal

          deep in moist caves

          where my mind always ran

what I always wanted

innocent shivering lip

of the virgin just before a kiss

          like the other side of the sky

          where something hides

          as close as in my soul

like a wishing fountain full of coins

dreams that appeared before

the end of a day’s toil

          another martyr

          another sacrifice

          another blessing
