what possesses a 52 year old man
to begat a child, he wondered.
And the answer swelling beneath his hand
kicked a message of love bonding to his heart.
Love – lyric of age upon age
is the message of the medium
for all else is dumb brute. Love is
a rainbow of meaning from lust to God
from unborn babe to bursting naked
passion in the night. Love flows down
the generations – father to son,
mother to child
and with unflagging hands we pass it on
a wave front passing through time and space
and all that begs it is anathema.
