The Roof Of Your Desire


 often my kindness

seems made out of raindrops

splashing against an abandon barn.


As i think backwards,


becomes sparse like the fish

that inhabit

the spaces of my friday dreams.


without a lover

ones does not blush pleasure

or share the  paleness of ones skin.

Nor brush against anotherís  body

caress the comb of  their  ribs.


The fruit of my words

never ripen

in anotherís flesh.

How apples become lonesome

without a suggestion to fall from.

Lips to touch against.


i wear a crown of falling leaves

i without rootóshriveling

as you read the old farmerís almanac;

and learn the potency you desire,


can deliver comfort

 to the roof of your desire.

"caress the comb of their ribs"...this is wonderfully original. I find a haunting lonliness in this poem. One does need love to flourish.


I thought, "How apples become lonesome
Without Lips to touch against" sounded lovely. Perhaps that is because I didn't understand what "a suggestion to fall from" meant in this sentence.
