Love

Love is always a virgin

Keith Moon and My Mother

Keith always insisted they had a connection.
The trajectory of my mother’s last years was not unlike what was finally to be his own.
They both headed south like programmed seasonal geese into jet engines taking off from God’s airport. Neither jet nor psychosis was willing to alter course.
Their broken feathers scattered all around me while Moon’s drifted across the globe.
I showed him a picture of my mother once; she was beautiful by any standard. Someone had snapped it in the decade of the flowered smock. He was instantly smitten. Over tours, he would bring her up to me out of nowhere.
The smock dress, a product of the 1950s, was the church’s last effort to stifle any hint of a woman’s sensuality. But unfortunately for repression, the more one tries, the hotter girls get. I owe all my sexual fantasies to those inhibited Puritans who raised me.
When my mother died, conveniently between Who tours, he took it in pace and reluctantly gave back my picture.
He did, on occasion, sidle up to me to ask if I had any luck yet in finding a flowered smock in his size.

Please repeat

How fun it is

to say again

To repeat the preferred

episodes of my life

over and over.

I remind me

of how wonderful

I have been at times.

Wonderful and happy.

I have had sadnesses,

of course,

but those are now

all by themselves

unnoticed.

There are still the quarrels

in me

over whether time

was wasted .

I think we all have those.

My life is floating timelessly

on the petals of my past.

Memories are all you can ever be.

Getting Even With Women

Blindingly handsome gay men are mankind’s only effective retaliation against women.

My Future

At my most recklessly honest and envious, I have to accept that my son is my only opportunity to see a future for which I can not last.

What Everything is Not

With every poem,
there comes
a sad confession
that it is not
a hundred page
novel.
