Two Poems: “Taken” and “Man at the Bar”

Taken

I want to enter the den of your thoughts

Like a snake slips into a birdhouse.

I want your fingers to comb my body like a bird,

You breathe

a ring of smoke encircles my thighs.

I want to scale you like a mountain.

I want to pulverize you like hot stone.

I want to tear down the sides of cities.

I want to murder the yards of memories 

that will hatch between us.

I want your mind to populate my mind,

To be the pictures hanging

from my martyred walls.

Man at the Bar

You are a nail that wanders

from plank to plank,

looking for a place

to bury yourself.
