courses and their anagrams

voices (and ears)

know naught of meanings

touch cannot know sight

there are no meetings

…odd, then, that i wish

so much, sometimes

to merely touch you

of sundry avoidances

of sundry avoidances

yes, those crosses stand askew
upon their hill; it’s
been so for years, since before
i was a boy. you

can hardly see the stains
now, though, time’s
many hands having cleansed
wood though not memory

i think sometimes
those nails pierced more than
palms and legs, as if
we’d been forever soulcaught

in that act, all executioners
all torturers
quite unable to preserve
even that we think to love

–but that’s merely idle fancy
and beer will fill this emptiness
quite nicely and we can
at least pretend to forget
