In the gloom on the left.

Why my legs

Around your neck

Tight neck-tie puffed dark blue

Same old entrance of the laughing crack

White olives of Christianity

Why should I wait in front of the closed door

Shy and beseeching passionate cello

Have children

Soak your gums with rare vinegars

The most delicate white is tainted with black

Your cock is smoother

Than a virgin's complexion

More provoking than pity

Feathered tool of incredible hubbub

Goodbye see you again it's done adieu

The longing for abundant blossoms is exhausted

Will come back

More vivid more violent

These mauve bonbons with their devoted swoons

Anxious and tetanus-like

The fervid nightmares of afternoon

Without you
