mud and slobber

from Crowsfeet and Greyskull by Keri Latimer



based on e.e. cummings poem 'spring omnipotent goddess thou'


measure me with spring's dirty mind
calculated to unwind burst anew
gasp a lifetime's worth of breath
and sing a song
where the guy tells the girl
he is dying with desire

shuffle of a june-bug
is an earthquake to an angleworm
that sings about a bed of flowers
whiskey mouth
and high and holler

throw me down throw me down
the mud and the slobber
and come and lay with me

show me where you're hurting
butter fingers fly and light
upon the lipstick of a lover
add a shade of your own color

flower soft and sweetly sighing
timid free and flesh and blood
gasp a lifetime's worth of breath
whiskey mouth and high and holler
