SAL (1946 / Dunedin New Zealand)

Phantasy And Imagination By (Ted Hughes)

He loved her and she loved him,
His kisses sucked out her whole past and future or tried to
He had no other appetite
She bit him, she gnawed him she sucked
She wanted him complete inside her
Safe and Sure forever and ever..

His smiles were the garrets of a fairy palace
Where the real world would never come
Her smiles were spider bites
So he would lie still until she felt hungry
His words were occupying armies
Her laughs were an assassin's attempt
His looks were bullets daggers of revenge
Her glances were ghosts in the corner with horrible secrets
His whispers were whips and jackboots
Her kisses were lawyers steadily writing
Her vows put his eyes in formalin
At the back of her secret drawer
Their screams stuck in the wall
Their heads fell apart into sleep like the two halves
Of a lopped melon, but love is hard to stop

In their entwined sleep they exchanged arms and legs
In their dreams
their brains took each other hostage

In the morning they wore each others faces............
