Jindrich Strysky-Emilie Comes to Me in Dream 1931

69

For a moment I thought,
When we came together
That anything, everything
Was finally possible;
Love as a greater unity,
Combining our limbs
Lips mouths cunt cock
Nothing to divide us,
No barriers to separate;
We shared a vision,
Tasted the pleasures
Of the long anticipated,
Much deferred paradise.

96

But the moment passed,
Our bodies disentangled.
Even the shortest distance
Can lead to disenchantment;
Ultimately we fuck alone.
After such knowledge,
After being tantalized
With the promise of grace
Makes this world a hell
And other people,
Persecuting demons.
No, we can’t all just get along,
I will repay your hate
With pinpricks of fear,
Maybe then we can finally
Share the horror inherent
In everything, anything,
Even a wilted dandelion clock.

  1. Wilted dandelion clock… Ingenious…. I find it so very amazing how you can talk about and describe everything with a poem, and the words just fit as a whole, the picture is set and sound. You’re a word magician and I’m amazed.

  2. I’m going observe that despite the sexual meaning of the numbers, they also signify the passing of years. ‘69 to ‘96 and disillusionment sets in. The artwork is ahem… really something

  3. Sharing this post on Google+ with the image led to the removal of the post within one day. Now I share it without the image, I will see how long it will last … ;o)
