My Blessed Body

from by From a Fountain



i said, “blonde,
my vagaries go on.
i think sleep might sound okay.
sleep’s gonna wash my cares away.”

she says, “love,
my saddle – it’s shaved.
blow on, brave!”

my arms shake
my bodice, it breaks
like always

high on the sound she goes, gone away

my blessed body escapes
black from bawdy escapades

sleep done wash my pain away
