Poem: Groaning with Graffiti

In the style of Denise Levertov, poet (1923-1997)
Dionysos_satyr_Altemps_Inv8606_n3
The Ludovisi Dionysus with panther, satyr and grapes on a vine (Palazzo Altemps, Rome) Dionysus: God of the Grape Harvest, Wine-making, Wine, Ritual Madness, Religious Ecstasy, Fertility and Theatre.

Three years the poem

of your body, of my

eyes upon your body

of my hands reading

each muscle—

Stroking, sweeping the

scent in the rite of

worship, going down

from the beat of a neck

vein, along broad shoulders,

twisted hair trail,

belly to cock.

For three years that poem, unwritten,

trapped in my mind, not wanting to

share that I lie with Dionysus,

fear that women would take my treasure

or a god, hearing my boast, would end you
