Lay With You

Poem By Brian (Yaotzu) Bungcayao

As I lay here
Will you lay with me.
Nonsexual embracing of shadowed walls
blocking out the light of day unappreciated
by the triumphs of man
beyond the illuminated window panes.

The dimly lit cushioned dance floor
of dreams to waltz in a silent
gust of breath passing back and forth
between a pair of lips and lungs.

Five fingers interwoven with
scattered strands of hair
on pillows impressed by your presence
a much as I am.

Stay at my side
Motionless, with no regard for the sun.
My free arm wrapping your chill away.
Over your back and fingers snuggled
between flesh and futon,
slipped under hip and numbed on the tips,
as you skip day besieged on a bed
while I skip my heat beats
blood pressure reads dead.
Reaching the fifth pagoda.

The tactile sense subsides
to the sixth unmentioned but understood.
Lips stays still but your breath is audible,
and I know all that is conveyed.

The Bed Of A Modern Man

Where has the quiet gone?
Aching for the mouths of bickering beast to swallow their own tongs.
Envisioning the flames of crashing cars from drivers with no respect to the human foot.

Losers Never Win

Losers never win,
dim lit existence
showing up at heavens door
banging daily yelling 'let me in',

Love Letter 2003

I tried to write a poem for you tonight
To encapsulate the feelings of joy
Elevated to heavens eyes
Gazing into a windowsill

They called her china doll
I called her for anther round

Her eyes rolled to the cat calls

Whatever Happened To The Slow Dance?

Whatever happened to the slow dance
Two souls weaving to the music
Bodies clinched to a slow jam
Mam, may I have this dance
