toward where—

toward where—
when you look about
some distant thing
i contemplate where you go
and imaginings creep
in such as
you hosting the scandalous
beauty of a
thousand kisses made
for you by lusting lovers
shaping you
their ultimate carving
formed and fashioned by
ignoble hands
exploring each dark niche
scented vehemence,
wonderful violence of
your indifference
unresponsive apathy
so cold and unconcerned
challenging anguish a
miserly nightmare of
gods’ and mortals’ crude craving
