love. recklessly

Love your life
recklessly
like a spire 
in the air

past some meddlin 
point of 
despair

like you 
don'even 
care
Love yourself 
in the morning
all scraggled your hair
yawnin before coffee
and meds
kickin in

Love your life
 at night 
when you 
can'even 
see

 in haystacks
    drunken alleys 
and trees
 wall to wall
rolling wheels 
of cheese

 second 
to loving
no'one else

   dreamin
haunted
up to no good 
at all

in mirrors
fancy clothes
long halls

in waders
rising up
jumpers
the fish

on your
 knees

Love your life
in cups
straight up 
with no chaser
bent stemming cherries
an shaken
an stirred

collapsed 
like umbrellas

When it rains outside
the mayhem 
behind locked doors
open but screened
walled up within
thirstin for light
dreamin of pinups
and ticker tape 
parades

pregnant with life
in floods and capris
glasses and ice flashes
in the sun

rooftop flashing
the sky for a 
sign
