Sherilyn on Franklin

“[A] romantic man can be as destructive to women as the stalker hiding around the corner at midnight; in his own mind, of course, the stalker is a romantic himself.”
Steve Erickson, “Henry Miller: Exhibitionist of the Soul,” Conjunctions:29 Fall 1997

the romantic is a stalker
a hustler
a hunger

a dancer
with the devout

a torch
without a flame

wild palms at sunset
you walk in the bedroom
wild horses take over
I dream of you rocking
red manzanita
paloma, muñeca
mi reyna extraña
nunca mañana

I walk with you when you walk with the Lord

words are not a mystery but a morgue
