Black

the space behind the chalk
above her number plates

circular on the road
transparent on the window

the bottom of the trolley
on the buddha’s back

over the whole truck
behind an open sign

before the milk’s poured in
inside the lining of her boots

underneath the ‘specials’
the cover for an ashtray

a jacket sitting on the seat
between lips on a straw

the letter Z on a box
the lid of a bottle of booze

a tray glued to the wall
a pale plate stacked on blue

upon a time

what a time we’ve had
the piano playing
as the bass strummed
the yelling neighbours
Louder Later Longer
the red wine sipping
pink teeth
stained lips
the fish that caught you
baking the oven

what a time we’ll have
when finally
the kiss allows to lips
and my bed
sweats into your pores
the fish eating us alive
writhing in its skin as
blue eyes are thrown back in

what a time I’m having
in a pond drenched
with music and rose
my body filling my head
with hands
senses torturing
a repetitive song
longing grasping itself
while trying to shake
salt into the flesh of dinner

what a time I’ve had
the wine pouring itself
from one cup
into one mouth
the bed warming itself
on one side
