Making Love In Poetry

Narrated by Bill Wolak

New Jersey


(After André Breton)


In a war where every second counts 

Time drops to the ground 

like a shadow from a tree 

under which we lie 

in a wood boat built from it 

by an unknown carpenter 

beyond the sea 

upon which peach pits float 

fired by a gunner who has run out of ammunition 

for a cannon whose muzzle bites heartshaped holes 

out of the horizon of our flesh 

stunned in sun and baffled into silence 

between the act of sex 

and the act of poetry 

at the moment of loving and coming 

there is no glimpsing of 

the misery of the world
