How do you find love
in such unlikely places?
How does anyone?
We’re off the map here
the part labeled ‘Here There be Dragons’
The place you wake up to
that is weirder than your dreams
Wild creatures are resting here
Strange calls dance the waters as one thing answers another
The unlovely cavorting with the unlovable
Strange is the night in these temples of pleasure
And you ask yourself
Why are you here?
