Boston Rendezvous: Haiku Cycle

(To GCS)

discipline of words.
haiku flowers in its bonds,
a grace in restraint.

safe sex: unopened
condom box on the table.
we swim the shallows.

pain and pleasure twine.
I do not understand but
only laugh, obey.

outside the portal
your flesh trembles, hesitates;
still, that gate is yours.

I am truly glad
you are not in love with me;
I would break your heart.

candle in the night.
still we burn and yearn and dream,
forever lovers.
