love in darkness

we don't ask of love in darkness
the children are long away and asleep
only adults are here about
the noises are distinctive
gutteral, animal, and joyful
there is a space there
in community
for respect and mutual agreement
despite the voyeurs and perverts
who would point fingers
and shine lights
ignoring bombs where children run
it's one or the other really
silence and discretion
here in the coupling of creatures
away tongue waggers
and fat cows
little men
and apathetic creatures
who are titillated
easily by death in the marketplace
whereas I would die with you
again and again and again
in ecstacy and self forgetting.
