Slicing Through

SLICING THROUGH

the cruel knife is curling

eeking out the careful things

surgically swift

cynically non caring

what is this issue of sharing

shall we speed thru the highlights

do u want to stay or go

loosen up lover

go with the flow

i seek stimulation

a headlong vacation

a trip thru the id

starry eyed blindly to bid

crooning and panting

sleek never recanting

'bout truth of our guile

ripe voices know how

it's never the same

for that is the gist of the game

the pressure of that intuition

a flight shaky condition

so easily mustered

with much mess and great fluster

just read...and concede...that human condition

twixt lust and perdition

will happen to thee...and then surely to me

for that uncanny knife.... slices straight thru my life

sense the truth of the lie....will never survive

upon examination

be it emotional exclamations

or simply sheer reverie

Here's something you might be interested in.
