An Other Worldly Poem

Tonight the moon is upon moon

And the black stars fade away in the oblivion

we do not know what time it is! what time is!

just feeling the nectar of moon we lick each other

as if mother earth stretches itself for another birth.

The calf pounds on the breasts of cow,

relishing sweet milk "Lisa, don't", she says in painful bliss,

we hammer each other until it's time of moon.

And the stars do fade away into the black nights

What time it is? what time is?

The moon is upon moon for another world.
