VENUS

I licked
the outside of
the envelope

before I went
hypertext, flew
hyperdrive

down here
in the acid rain
oysters and
other mollusks
must clam shut
or get
Kentucky fried

but here we are
ruled by the Moon
in sign of Cancer
heading for
far-flung galaxy
or alternate universe

where they mix
metaphors with
gay abandon
(wholly different
laws of
physics and
sexual orientation)

where
beginnings always
meet endings or
always steadfastly refuse

here on Venus
I finally envisage
how everything comes
full circle

how you
can both
be nightmare
and my delirium of beauty
scratching for
synthesis
searching for
a theory
where circles
are indeed squared
where parallels always meet.

I licked the outside
deconstructing the inside
softest
exploration
purest research.
