Wicked eyes, wicked ways, wicked wants

what wicked sees in me
cagey leopard without spots, a beast with
innate need still breathes
he talks of game, thrills with sparks and flames
no one immune from the burning man living in his cluttered room
what news, what stirs you to cook, pot luck?
say he will amuse you
then look into you
chew right through you, before you blink
he comes like sifted sand blown by desert winds from where no deserts lie
you will be mystified by his silver blue eyes
he has lived in dark spaces you will never see
too many lives lived in only one
he lost the sun before you learned to run
somehow he knows about the diamonds hidden in your soul
this is what he covets most, he told you so

4/30/13, Hark
