for Jim Morrison

1. Spiritual woman
I’d love to see you
take off your skin
Allow the truth in

let me and my …. (w)in.

2. I do not commit suicide
only because
our souls are one
I stand not alone
one cannot cut the thread
without hurting the strands
once tied
unite, don’t untie

Besides, I never knew how

3. If you ask me to choose
gun or breast
sword or lily
no more do I
care for either
or not want to choose both
I like death or poetry
and my love I seek only in the eyes and bodies
of the wordless
and in loneliness
where no speech disturbs
and as for, and to, all the others
Women, I just want to love you
World of men, just mow you down.
