TIME IT TAKES TO
REACH ORGASM

she writes in tercets
this I have taught her
also how to
retard the pleasure until
the god Dionysus comes
himself to witness
his own
redefinition

I taught her things painstakingly
voyaging through every compendium of the senses
the tastes, the touches, the sounds, the smells,
the visual beauty which is there
only as springboard, launch
pad for every thing of flesh
born into pain and yet in
this transported

beyond servitude to star, escaping
star surveillance
to know that fire, that energy
in which every molecule we are
every atom we exchange
was once forged
