Map Shower

I want your hair
to cover me with maps
of new places,

so everywhere I go
will be as beautiful
as your hair.

I’ve Never Had It Done so Gently Before

The sweet juices of your mouth
are like castles bathed in honey.
I’ve never had it done so gently before.
You have put a circle of castles
around my penis and you swirl them
like sunlight on the wings of birds.

Discovery

The petals of the vagina unfold
like Christopher Columbus
taking off his shoes.

Is there anything more beautiful
than the bow of a ship
touching a new world?

Taken from “The Pill Versus the Springhill Mine Disaster” by Richard Brautigan.
