from Songs: Not Just Survival included in The Closet Clandestine: a queer steps out


 

Ring me with young hearts,
Songs green with remembrance,
But not so green to be mowed.
Scarlet hussies
With laughter on their breath,
And liquor too,
For they know what I have forgotten
And I need to know again.

Ring me with fiery youth,
Dancing boys who know their stuff,
Who know what I know,
That life is invincible
And infinite.

And when I whisper the truth to them,
They laugh at my failing body,
But laugh with my seeking soul
And hold me fast to the lies of youth
Which I need to remember
In this life of infinite laughter.

This I like very much.....melancholy but with a touch of sweetness and joy that is almost subliminal...
