Poem by: Ben Dunk.† September 1978.

 

TWO DESIRES

 

In the consummate heart of the lover

Dwells the desire to consume

 

To the creature of lust nothing is the answer

But to the predator of primeval affection

Comes the oblivion of communion

 

Let the instinct roll on and

In extant time stand tranquil

 

Fill then the fulfillment of love

Descend into the order of stimulation

Desire non-intransigence of each otherís soul

 

Then the lost dreams come into focus

And the surveillance of adoration becomes mutual

 

They are one in the natural and mystical elements

They conspire in a head-locked embrace

Whilst bodies satiate their own conception of humanity.
