Sexy Newfound Poet!

I just fell in love with another poet(ry) who I found on another blog... this one (Song of the Taste) makes me achy.

Eating the living germs of grasses
Eating the ova of large birds
the fleshy sweetness packed
around the sperm of swaying trees

The muscles of the flanks and thighs of
soft-voiced cows
the bounce in the lamb's leap
the swish in the ox's tail

Eating roots grown swoll
inside the soil

Drawing on life of living
clustered points of light spun
out of space
hidden in the grape

Eating each other's seed
ah, each other

Kissing the lover in the mouth of bread:
lip to lip.

~Gary Snyder
