pursuing high

ah, but that
twist of the brain
ah, when the
drugs settle in
like a hound to
his bitch
we snuff out
this itch

with the flick
ah, the flick
of a stubborn
match in the
back of your
daddy’s car.

take a hit
ah, a hit
of that cloudy
haze when your
eyes see the
smack of stars.

float on by
ah, float
driftwood.
prostrate to
the raging
sea.

hope she rages
ah, just for me.

  1. These are the moments from you that I wait for Southern Man.

    It’s like you forget who may be watching and just give in to temptation…

    It isn’t every day that we get treated to something as private and intimate as a man making love to his words.

    When it’s done right – they sigh ever so gently when they reach the edge – just like these ones.

    Moonlight.
