The carnal faces
of stolen passion
from the need
for spirit quenching
Thirst that runs over.

And so it’s always
“Dark and sweet–“
for some
Whiteface seeking it with the same perversity
that sought our rootless outcome.

But ‘sweet’ is
what kisses your 3 eyes
Windwarm nights
of know
and Glow…
No sugar blues for me.
…some things aged truths…
