Poetry Italy 7

Emollient Mounds of Flesh
Under an Olive Tree

A pudgy pudendum
Sullied with ringlets of silky short black hairs
Blurts out its lush onto the grass.

Pounds of muscle and fat
In rounds and carnal lanknesses
Lay on green ovoid fruit stalks below the mass.

Yellowy greens.
Leathery leaves.
Oily sardines.

A syringe there.
A condom there.
A tissue there.

2 January 1987
