“Cosmic Love” – Haiku III

21—
I am mercury
Parched of creative soul, you
Drain me, exhume me

22—
A charmless wasteland
This is a bitter planet
For the sensitive

23—
Lavender in storm
Is the scent of her sea masque
The drowning ballroom

24—
Cataclysmic want
Desire that contorts life to
Suit one obsession

25—
Enraged ancestors
Linger in thickets between
Grave mounds of garbage

26—
Children are mushrooms
Bursting radioactive
Scalding the ozone

27—
Jungle of patterns
Electric painted imps dance
Around green bonfire

28—
Lover of June rains
His euphoric tears disguised
By cleansing downpour

29—
Tattooed with stardust
Hyper-chromatic angel
Fly me far from here

30—
Fill me with clockwork
At last I will be intact
Lacking only faith
