         I can go to where the faces
           turn in and out of my life...
         A lover's parade for nothing
           but the experience of change.

         I could clutch after their beauty
           thru incredible passages
         of beginings and endings
           tasting of their essences...and absences
         of that poignant something
           inside of each of us.

         Til their faces would spin older
           and my years shorter
         until their essences had escaped them all
           from the absence of more
              than just passing faces.

                    After Diana on acid

         That our spirits ran like water together
           and we were no more than our experience -
              is what I'm thinking sometime later.

         At some improbable junction
           between moving vans and long time compromises
         we walked through each other ghost to ghost
           and appeared again, unchanged.

         Its all too high priced and much too nice
           this mixing of friends and lovers, of fire and ice.
         Its more than our lives's fabric can bear
           that we could wear each other's hearts
              and the cloth not tear.

         My fire sign sister with the high maya price,
           you're very tempting, but the karma's not nice.

1975-07-03 Burning Eyes

                            Burning Eyes
      What do you say to someone who knows what you're thinking...
         When mutual feedback empties your minds of focus and form.
            What pleasantries then posed could begin to replace
               your silence, freely given, listening
                  to the soft presence of your selves, together?
