Motel Fleurs du Mal
Oneiric invitation - the song/dream transforms,
reshapes earth/bones/word into warm lips and flesh -
solace from skeletal terrors - a beckoning towards release
now corpus becomes dream again.
Sweat-soaked pillow, bruised thighs; a fading sepia come-on.
The song is the room and moment and memory,
the body and the ashes - the ghost of that indecipherable smile.
Smeared lipstick static from a broken antennaed wire hanger TV.
Revlon tube cathode tube synthetic daisies;
a bottle and some bills on the night stand.
Star-spangled banner then the hum of darkness we're alone.
Hush and roar, the art of smoke-stained flower arrangement.
