Tag Archives: paradise

beyond mere words

don’t tell anybody
about this place
the woman said

but i can’t
resist the temptation
vision of paradise

heaven on earth
in her eyes
somewhere to rest

body mind spirit
safe haven beneath
clear blue skies


Rousseau as after-dinner mint

Savagery still survives
In the suburbs
Only it’s better hid
Behind a brick veneer

The primordial longing
For a paradisal bliss existing
Beyond the TV advangelists
And frozen-pea politics, yes

Many will settle for the comforts
Of our world’s manifold mod cons
Yet underneath they remain brutes
Uncivilized in the ways of exile.
