THREE WORKS
BY KIKI HOLLI

TAKEN BY WANDERING DREAM

Doubleness lures despair
                      a sinewy chain
Each day holds it's own destruction
                      romances death

Truth a skeleton at life's feast tightens the heart
Lies don flesh, live within our secret chambers

Doubleness lures despair
                       a glittery white rope
Each week begs it's final bow
                       seduces unforgivable desires

Crevices full of jaded memories seep to confess all
Others possess us, use our hot pain to own us

Taken by wandering dream
To indigo spheres alive with blue mirrors we tumble into
searching for ourselves failing to recognize our own face.

================

NECESSARY ILLUSIONS

Glumly we cavort
Our bodies bruised in a
sudden late brutality

The atmosphere we create,
births ripe halos from
our acidic souls -
Eerie crowns heavy with hope
lined with dismay

We succumb to the airs flesh
her sublime cone of sex gathers
our paunchy love pushes and
prods us - forms a new love

Divine but not of this world.

================

LOVE AND FEAR

                    raw silken purple lust
                      sugar laden flesh
            "my fiery tongue scripts your sad poems"
          "you are mistaken, it is you who envy my blue love"
                       my words crumble
                       my mind runs red
                           i'm done
           your passion is an indelible smudge on my palms.
